Four years, nine months


Not long enough, once you familiarise yourself with this paragon of society.

Teenager Hendrix Hauwai has been jailed for a week-long violent rampage last year, which included the assault of Good Samaritan Lucy Knight.

Hauwai claimed he was forced to rob women so he could feed himself and his younger sister.

Ms Knight was in the North Shore District Court this morning, where he was sentenced to four years and nine months in jail.

The court heard the 17-year-old started offending in September last year, not long after he started using methamphetamine.

It was noted Hauwai had only asked for one thing while in custody: colouring pencils

Hauwai will continue to present a threat to society once released. ?This one’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
