Mount Maria College student pleads guilty to unlawful wounding
The boy was 14 years-old when he stabbed a fellow student in the neck with a kitchen knife at Mount Maria College at Mitchelton and has pleaded guilty to unlawful wounding but not guilty to attempted murder.
Defence Barrister Robert East says his client's age made him incapable of fully grasping the consequences of his actions, that the student was responding to bullying and that there was powerful evidence that he intended to threaten his classmate, not kill him.
