A VICTIM of fantasist Stephen Jackley has declared the armed robber a "sickening crook".
Luke Twistleton was a student at the same university as Jackley, but had never met him before he was confronted by the balaclava-clad raider.
The 22-year-old was on his first day of part-time work at William Hill bookmakers in Worcester, when the drama unfolded.

He was in court to see Jackley sentenced because he wanted to look at him face to face.
