    What does it mean? I still can’t work it out, but it’s still in Glasgow isn’t it?

    I think so yes...I think it will go as expected tomorrow..it did sound a bit confusing didn't it...I think it's just general jargon to cover a number of things that could be changed if need be.

    What's chilling about this "boy" is the insane brutality of what he did to a baby but coupled with the utter casualness of his body language on the CCTV video.

    THAT'S what is terrifying to me. This wasn't some out of control young person who developed a sudden, uncontrollable rage. It was planned and then calmly executed until he got to the savagery. Then he was calm again.

    This is a person who can't be rehabilitated IMO. If he was 10, maybe. But no. By that age with that level of coolness coupled with savagery?

    I'm scared about what he will do when he gets out. All he's going to learn in prison is how to game the system. How to fool people even more. How to be a better criminal.

    It's chilling.

    “To hear people say this is the worse case in Scotland is horrible. Now my child will be known for that. Alesha always wanted to be famous – but never like this"

    This quote from her mother made me tear up, hoping for the best today, Alesha deserves justice. Give him whatever in Scotland is the maximum but with a chance to increase it after the time is up so there's a chance this ******* never gets out.

    Just thinking of Alesha’s Mum, Dad and the wider family this morning. Hope is all they have right now, that justice will be served with the maximum sentence given. Positive thoughts going their way. If only it made a difference xo

    Hoping justice prevails for Alesha and her family today, I hope he he is handed out the maximum sentence he can possible be given.

    I expect the past few weeks have well and truly wiped that smirk from his face now. He’s going down for a very,very long time. I think Lord Matthews will set a precedent today, I do hope so.

    I'm preparing myself to be very pissed off with the sentence he gets! Hopefully it will be as long as they can give. It needs to be.

    Yes , that thought has crossed my mind too. I’m sure Lord Matthews will get it right for Alesha.

    I really hope he gets a life means life sentence, is that even possible?

    I watched a programme last night where a boy in Dundee murdered when he was 15, he was jailed for life but then a changed in the law meant that any life sentences had to have a tariff attached to them when someone could be considered for release, he was released after 17 years only to go on and try and kill again.. weeks after being released..

    I feel if AC is ever released there’s a chance of him doing something like this again, I think there are certain people who just can’t be fixed.

    "In a rare move a camera will be allowed in court to film Campbell's sentencing."

    Alesha MacPhail killer to be sentenced

    I thought that I read that a few days ago. I wonder why this time?

    Possibly because it’s been such a high profile case.

    Sarahjo - I have that same foreboding feeling. Maybe he’ll get parole aged 30...
