A 34-year-old man who attempted to murder a teenager in a machete attack on a Stoke-on-Trent estate is due to be sentenced this afternoon.
Adam Shaw has remained in custody since being convicted of the attempted murder charge by a jury.
He is now due to be sentenced via Skype at Stafford Crown Court later today.
It follows the machete attack in Mallorie Road, Norton, on September 10.
The jury heard how the victim was left with a fractured eye socket, cuts to his head and hands, and had the tip of one of his fingers sliced off after being hit 12 times with the machete.
The victim managed to escape and ran to nearby Barks Drive before he returned to Mallorie Road where he collapsed and the emergency services were called.
Shaw, of Furlong Road, Tunstall, was also convicted of possessing an offensive weapon.
