News just in, Wheatley has won an appeal on the sentence he was given for carrying out an armed robbery after walking out of an open prison. So now instead of having to serve 10 years before being eligible for parole he now only has to serve 8
Now lets not forget here that this recividist has 23 previous convictions for robbery, two for attempted robbery, 18 for related firearms offences and was already serving a LIFE SENTENCE
when he did a bunk while on day release.
Mr Justice Cranston, who along with Lady Justice Hallett and Mr Justice Knowles, reduced the tariff, added that he still faced a "very considerable period" behind bars.
"This was a very serious offence and the fact that it occurred when the appellant was on day release must clearly be a matter for public concern," he said.
Evidently this was such a serious crime that combined with his history led you to make the decision to reduce the amount of time he would have to wait before he is eligible for parole. Now I know that the three of you will never leave your ivory towers and venture into the real world but this bastards victims, not to mention the general public as a whole, have a right to know what the hell possessed you to make that decision.
He may spend a considerable time behind bars as you say but in the case of an unrepentant violent thieving thug like Wheatley the needs of the many should take priority and he should never be allowed even the slightest chance of parole. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-30228964
