A FATHER-of-three could be facing jail after admitting stabbing a 21-year-old in Ipswich last year.

Christian Llewellyn-Jones of Plymouth pleaded guilty to a charge of wounding at Ipswich Crown Court today.

The charge relates to an incident on Saturday March 11, 2006 in Quay Street, on the waterfront near the Il Punto floating restaurant.

At one stage the victim Jermaine Ballantyne, 21, was said to have a 50/50 chance of survival after being stabbed in a major artery in his leg.

Judge Neil McKittrick ordered a report and said that all sentencing options remain open.

Llewellyn-Jones was bailed to reappear at Ipswich Crown Court not before March 26.
