Goaltender Todd Ball has been sentenced to 30 days in jail after he attacked Ryan Cox during a 3 on 3 charity game. Ball delivered a two-handed slash to Cox, who was on a breakaway at the time.
The victim Cox said:
He only got 30 days for breaking someone’s face. My life has never been the same. I can’t feel my face. It is numb. I get bad headaches. It is hard for me to sleep. I’ve had facial surgeries and reconstructions. The sentence was too lenient. It’s an injustice. It’s ridiculous.
I feel they should have made an example out of him. I just don’t want this to happen to anybody else.
How many days should Ball have been sentenced to jail?
