John Bisson of Sage Walk, Oxford was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Friday.
He was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment with an extended four year licence for causing grevious bodily harm with intent.
He was found guilty after a six day trial and convicted on 14 March at the same court.
He was charged on 6 May 2016.
On the evening of 21 November 2015 at Railway Lane, Oxford, John Bisson attacked the victim, a 42-year-old local man, with a wooden pole, breaking the man’s arm.
