‘Hamesucken’ pair jailed for 10 months

A PAIR of men who pleaded guilty to the ancient charge of ‘hamesucken’ were sent to prison for 10 months each when they appeared at Campbeltown Sheriff Court.

In November, Stuart Graham, 39, of Seabank, Low Askomil, Campbeltown, and Michael Malcolm McGougan, 27, of Flat 2/1, 125 Allander Road, Bearsden, Glasgow, admitted the charge during a trial. ‘Hamesucken’ is defined as a premeditated assault on a person in his or her own dwelling and used to be punishable by death.
