Three Bermudian teenagers have been sentenced to four years in prison for attacking and robbing a Jamaican construction worker in August last year.

Reports indicate that the Jamaican, 33-year-old Kevin Abrahams, now has a titanium plate in his skull as a result of the attack.

Kyle Daniels Smith and Sanchea Douglas will each serve four years behind bars, with time in custody taken into account.

Judah Roberts was sentenced to time spent in custody, plus two years' probation for inflicting grievous bodily harm on Abrahams during the attack.

The three 18 year olds, reportedly left their victim with serious head injuries.

A fourth defendant, 22-year-old Sergio Robinson-Woolridge, was sentenced to seven years' imprisonment on Friday for robbery.

Reports also indicate that a fifth attacker, a juvenile, has already been before the Family Court for his role in the mugging.

The court heard that Abrahams lost US$80 and two mobile phones during the attack.

In his victim impact statement, Abrahams said he had been left with anxiety attacks, severe headaches and a constant fear of retaliation.

He is still undergoing treatment, and both his Bermuda-born sons live with family abroad because of fears for their safety.
