A man who was sent to jail after shooting a woman accidentally in the vagina during a kinky sex game has had his jail sentence reduced.
It was gathered that David Andrew Jeffers left the woman in agony and fled after the shotgun went off during a sex session fuelled by drinks and drugs at a Stockport hotel.
The 48 year old discarded the gun on his way to catch a train home to Leeds. He also reportedly changed his appearance by cutting off his dreadlocks to avoid being caught.
However, after he was tracked by police to Yorkshire, he was jailed for 10 years last August for having a gun with intent to endanger life at Minshull Street Crown Court.
Today, the Court of Appeal in the UK heard how Jeffers and the unnamed victim had spoken about her fantasy of having a loaded gun placed in her vagina.
And after an appeal by his lawyers, three top judges at London’s Court of Appeal said Jeffers had been hard done by and cut his sentence to eight-and-a-half years.
Giving the ruling, Mr Justice Morris said that Jeffers did not have the gun to commit crime and that the woman was up for the “dangerous sex act”.
Prior to the meeting last year, Jeffers, of Berkeley Terrace, Harehills, had sent her a message referring to “dat ting you want up ya”.
The Judge said that they had spoken about her fantasy of having a loaded gun placed in her vagina.
And although Jeffers’ finger had been on the trigger at the Britannia Hotel, in Offerton, it was a complete accident that the antique rat-eliminating shotgun had gone off.
It caused her “catastrophic” and “life-changing” internal injuries, which had a “devastating” impact on the woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons.
