A woman who attacked two strangers with an axe in a Sydney convenience store has had her jail term increased by five years. Transgender woman Evie Amati, 27, was in January sentenced to nine years behind bars for the violent and unprovoked attack at the Enmore 7-Eleven in 2017. The Crown appealed the leniency of the sentence and the Court of Criminal Appeal today set it aside and instead imposed a sentence of 14 years with a non-parole period of eight years. It means her minimum jail term has nearly doubled and she will not be eligible for parole until January 2025.
