    I heard a legal expert on the radio yesterday say that people sentenced to life for murder have nothing to lose by appealing as their sentence can’t be increased so it’s standard practice to lodge an appeal.

      Can’t fault the logic of that comment. Though I had never ever, considered that simple truth. Thanks

      Correct. What I’m being told about the new Court of Appeal is that it has taken a rather firmer line than the old Court of Criminal Appeal. It’s getting through the backlog at a rate of knots as well.

      Same deal with a plea. No point to plead guilty and spare the victim’s families the ordeal because there is nothing to lose by pleading not guilty

    Well, there’s no reason to imagine he’s become less deluded over the past few weeks.

    Is there a judge in the land that would let him off on a technicality. Even if one exists, you’d couldn’t let a madman like that out. The threat to the public would be extreme. Not that judges in Ireland are unduly concerned about threats to the public.
