Sentences for crimes.

Post by Rbjustme on Wed Dec 09, 2015 12:50 pm

This man assaulted a women, after kicking down a public toilet door then grabbing her by the throat for a second time while she was only partially dressed then threw her on the ground. Alcohol and substance abuse was a major contributor in this crime the magistrate said, but that doesn't cut it with me. I you read the story, he has a history of violence, yet he only received 21 months jail, and is eligible for parole after 15 months. Shock

Your thoughts: Are some magistrates too light in handing down sentences for crime such as this, as well as others?

Too easy to make excuses these days. If you ignore a problem it means you are indirectly giving it approval. He consciously took drugs and consciously drank alcohol, so must be held responsible for his disgusting actions.

Yet another situation where a mans murder conviction was downgrade to manslaughter after he killed his wife. Thousands of people in Brisbane have signed a petition to have this sentence reinstated back to murder. Your thoughts?

He murdered her, no doubt about it, he planned it and executed it, so it did not happen accidentally, so therefore it is murder. He wanted out so he could continue to play the field. Angry

I don't know why magistrates are so lenient in these appeal's in the first place, I always thought that in cases such as this that there had to be substantial new evidence before an appeal even took place?

To have a sentence downgraded as this one was, something went horribly wrong in the trial to start with one way or the other.

The way that I see it, is that they twist the facts around and distort the truth so much, that it results in outright deviation from the real facts, and people get off lightly because of it. Spy

And on today's news the convicted murderer Adrian Bailey is allowed to approach Legal Aid for funding to dispute 2 rape charges, for what end? He was sentenced to life for the Jill Maher rape/murder, with a minimum of 35 years to serve, plus additional years for more rapes he was found guilty of. So if he gets 2 charges reduced what will it achieve apart from a waste of public money. He is still in jail for life + whatever years. Truly the law is an ass!!! Frustrated
