Coronation Street shock as Faye Windass is sentenced to THREE YEARS in prison for Adam Barlow attack

CORONATION Street fans are in shock after Faye Windass was sentenced to three years in prison for attacking Adam Barlow.

The waitress – who is played by actress Ellie Leach in the ITV soap – broke down in tears as the judge sentenced her with the harshest possible sentence he could pass.

He told her: “Miss Windass, you have pleaded guilty to the crime of grievous bodily harm and the court acknowledges your honesty in making such a plea.

“And I have taken it into account when deciding your sentence. 

“You have also made a submission that the alleged crimes of a Mr Raymond Crosby be acknowledged in mitigation, however Mr Crosby’s trial is ongoing and as such he remains innocent in this court’s eyes until proven otherwise.

“Furthermore, it remains the case, that the victim Mr Adam Barlow was not your intended target and demonstrates how ill-conceived your assault was.

“This was a reckless and pre-meditated attack on an innocent man. 

“For this reason, and despite your guilty plea, I feel I have no choice but to hand down the harshest possible sentence available to the court.

“Three years in custody.”

Faye’s brother Gary reacted violently to the shock, shouting at the judge: “Three years? She’s the assault victim.

“She was scared and she made a mistake. Don’t you think she’s been through enough? 

“Three years! It’s shocking – it doesn’t make any sense. Did he pay you off? That’s what he did, didn’t he? That’s what he does. The rapist paid you off.”

Faye’s family tried everything to appeal but realised unless Ray changed his plea – Faye would spend at least 18 months in prison.

Viewers were in shock at the twist.

One wrote: "I can’t believe Faye got 3 years #corrie."

A second said: "Poor Faye I can't believe she has got 3 years #Corrie."

Another added: "Three years?! Are you freaking kidding me?! Poor Faye 🙁 #Corrie."
