One more Big Sleep!


Only hours away now imagine the tension and emotions of everyone involved, witnesses, police, the SES searchers who braved the rain and the volunteers who provided refreshments to those heroes.
Without you all Allison may never have been found and it could be a totally different outcome.

No problems. Suggest you be outside the courtroom door at no later than 9.45am even a bit earlier if you can, then as soon as security opens the doors go straight in and find a seat in the public seating. Allow for time to get through security at the court entry, just like the airport hand luggage scanner. You can come and go as you please, just bow to the judge on the way in and out. There will also be a sign on the door with the room number of the media room for the live streaming that anyone can go to if the main courtroom is full.

There are seats set aside for Allison's family And his too. There will be roughly 8-10 for ABC, no idea how many for him.

Just something to bear in mind when you are trying to find a seat.

Only saying this as some members of the public got a bit shirty with ABC's family at the committal when they reserved seats for themselves.

Cheers,

We were put into this world of wonders and beauty with a special ability to appreciate them, and also in being able to help other people instead of over reaching them and, through it all, to enjoy life ... and to be happy.
That is what I count as success, to be happy.
To me, the most fundamental element of good leadership is to lead by example.
That entails responsibility ... responsibility for one's own actions.

How could anyone want the place of a mother or father of a murdered child.

Baden-Clay Trial : The Cost

http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/badenclay-trial-the-cost-20140609-zs20f.html

The bill for the Baden-Clay trial could top $500,000.
The average cost of a Supreme Court criminal trial is $35,000 per day.
But the cost of the entire trial, including court overheads, could top $500,000.
Under Legal Aid provisions, the defence counsel is usually paid about $3300 per day, while the defence solicitor receives about $880 per day.
Crown prosecutors are paid an annual salary of between $150,000 and $160,000.

Baden-Clay Case : The Players

Justice John Byrne:
Justice Byrne has presided over recent high profile cases including the trials of Bundaberg surgeon Jayant Patel and convicted triple murderer Max Sica. The Brisbane Boys' College graduate studied law at the University of Queensland. He was appointed a judge of the Supreme Court in 1989 and was appointed senior judge administrator of the court in 2007.

Crown prosecutor Todd Fuller QC:
One of Queensland’s top silks, Mr Fuller is an assistant director of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. He studied law at the University of Queensland and was admitted as a barrister in 1989. Mr Fuller was appointed principal crown prosecutor at the DPP in 2003. In recent years, he has successfully prosecuted cop killers Phillip Graeme Abel and Donna Lee McAvoy and triple murderer Max Sica.

Crown prosecutor Danny Boyle:
Mr Boyle acts as a consulting Crown prosecutor for the Director of Public Prosecutions. He graduated from the Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Laws in 1984 and was admitted to the bar just four years later. He was involved in successfully prosecuting the man and three teenagers convicted of bashing to death the uncle of rugby league star Johnathan Thurston in 2011.

Defence counsel Michael Byrne QC:
Formerly the deputy director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Byrne now sits on the opposite side of the bar table. He studied law at the University of Queensland and was first called to the bar in 1977. He defended Bundaberg surgeon Jayant Patel last year and represented cop killers Phillip Graeme Abel and Donna Lee McAvoy. It will be the first time Mr Byrne meets Mr Fuller in a Supreme Court trial since the trial of Abel and McAvoy in September last year.

Defence solicitor Peter Shields:
Mr Shields, a former police officer, is one of few accredited criminal specialist solicitors in Queensland. He studied law at the Queensland University of Technology and was admitted to practice as a solicitor in Queensland and New South Wales in 1998, before opening his own practice in New Farm.

Is it still the case that if you are a witness you cant sit in until after you have testified? If thats still the case, might be interesting to note who is absent from the BC clan tomorrow.

I can't believe we have finally reached the eve of the trial.
If he is found guilty then in my opinion only $500 000 is a small price to pay.

Hang onto your seats people I think we're in for a wild ride !
