A year ago, a man left a Madrid Metro blind nurse with a broken eye. He recriminated that he didn't have to wear a mask when he was driving to cut the coronavirus chain. The sentence will be eight years and six month in prison.
This is the sentence J.C.L.C. will request. This will be the sentence requested by J.C.L.C. The representative of the Public Ministry will also request compensation by civil liability of 80,383 euro to the victim for his vision loss in the right eye.
According to the indictment, there is enough evidence to prove that J. C. L. C. was travelling in a subway car on line 1 on July 13, 2021 at 10:30 p.m. He made the trip between the Cuatro Caminos station and Alto del Arenal station. G. M. C., a registered nurse, approached him several times to ask him to correctly put on the mask. He was wearing the mask at chin level, without covering his nose or nose.
Others joined the protest but the defendant refused to wear the mask repeatedly. The nurse did it. A fight broke out between them, and they kicked and punched one another until they were separated.
The prosecution will argue before the magistrates that the accused gave the nurse a punch in her eye with the edge from his mobile phone while screaming at him "asshole! I hope you die!" He fled the scene. The attack resulted in the victim losing his sight in his right eye. There were some ocular sequelae which suggested "non-pecuniary damage due a loss of quality life to a small degree."
On July 19, 2021, the defendant was taken into custody. He was released on bail on July 21st, having given a statement. During the trial, the prosecutor will stress that J. C. L. C. was an undocumented immigrant. He has not provided documentation in the past six months that would allow him to stay in Spain. There is no evidence, however, that the prosecution has made inquiries.
