The jockey who strangled a man twice his size – Christy McGrath (2006)

The day before his trial for murder, Christy McGrath was persuaded by his own lawyer to change his plea to guilty of manslaughter. Christy had fought with the victim in self defence, and hit him with a brick. But after he received a life sentence, he learned that the victim died later from strangulation, something Christy could not have done.

If you would like to write to Christy McGrath you can do so by mailing him at : HM Prison Gartree, Market Harborough, Leicestershire, England.
