Yob Mikoliunas, 18, attacked his former teacher because of his ‘born hatred for his old school’, Hull Crown Court was told. Dad-of-one Mr Dawson, a teacher at Sirius Academy West in Hull, was put in hospital for a week and needed his face to be ‘reset’ after the unprovoked attack outside a garage on March 18 last year. He was left blood-soaked, concussed and temporarily blinded on the pavement. Reading Mr Dawson’s victim impact statement in court, prosecutor Julia Baggs said: ‘Following the attack, Mr Dawson had to have his face reset and does not yet have feeling back in his lower face and cheeks. ‘He says he cannot yet smile as a result of his injuries. ‘He says when his daughter asks “why I am not smiling when I am happy” – he has to say that “I am smiling with my eyes”.’Thug!

The pain was ‘excruciating’, the court heard. Surgeons had to lift his facial structure off his face and re-set it with wires, rods and pins and had to have his lips being severed. The teacher had to sign a consent form before surgery and was warned when he woke up he ‘might be blind’. The attack also brought on depression and anxiety and meant he was unable to sing with his friends in his Kings of Leon tribute band. Mikoliunas – who was 17 at the time of the attack – was convicted of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm after a one-day trial at Hull Youth Court in July last year.Thug!
