I honestly don't believe this!!
One of the young thugs who kicked a 20-year old woman to death because they took exception to her dress as a Goth has had his sentence cut by 9 months. His co-accused did not get a reduction so that's alright then!
These sub-human cretins attacked the lady's boyfriend, kicking him unconcious and when she stepped in to try and protect him, they turned on her and actually stamped on her head as she lay on the ground.
The defence barristers appealed on the basis that the original sentencing was too harsh because the "boys" were only young when they committed the offence. They are/were 15 or 16 when they did it.
Although the sentences were technically indefinite, the crazy law in this country insists that a minimum sentence has to be declared at the time of conviction,. They were given minimums of 16 years and so these imbeciles can apply for release in their mid-thirties.
Sadly, the victim's family and boyfriend will not be released from their pain in 16 years.
