starting point for sentencing at seven and a half years in prison
took into account the teen's youth
settled on a sentence of six years imprisonment with a minimum non-parole period of three years and three months
The Crown were seeking a starting point of 10 years imprisonment for the teenager
There is something seriously wrong with our judiciary. They don't have the balls to impose maximum sentences with zero parole. It appears that this judge is just another dud judge.
Criminals in my book forfeit all rights upon commission of the crime. Maximum sentences are the only option, lock them up and forget parole. Life means life, no exceptions or parole. Home D is just a holiday joke.
