    What is a " full and substantial appeal"?

    I have no idea, maybe it means everything put forward will be considered. Or possibly they mean we'll make sure that his sentence is watertight.

    Why don’t you think Aaron is appealing his conviction @Eezer Goode ? You know if he’s really innocent and being set up by the police, the court, the judge and the psychologists ? This is his last chance to get the “truth” out there, that he wasn’t really trying to hold back laughter, that he wasn’t really satisfied with the murder and that he didn’t abduct a child From her bed, rape her, murder her and smear his “cum” on her and then joke about it with his friends the next day? I just can’t think why he could be sitting back and accepting a 27 year Minimum prison sentence for something he didn’t do ?...

    ADMIN NOTE:

    I've just had to go through 16 pages to remove 30 off topic posts and other posts that violate Websleuths' Terms of Service.

    You do realize there are other threads that need tending? WS staff don't have time for this type of nonsense.

    Members had best read The Rules (linked in my signature) and abide by them or I am seriously at the point of closing this thread and leaving only the *No Discussion* media thread open for MSM as it happens. Takes nothing more than a click of a button to do so.

    Nobody wants to be responsible for a thread being closed. The choice is yours.

    He’ll play on his age and also the Judge Lord Matthews who is known for giving long sentences.

    I dont think so,they were so young when they were locked away and so much work was done to rehabilitate them that it made no sense to send them on to adult prison and undo all the good work(with Thompson at least in hindsight) that had been done.
    I think they would have to look at cases where the convict was around the same age,in which case 27 years isnt that excessive

    And further to @Kiranerys reply, that was England. I'm not sure they can use cases in English law as comparison for Scottish sentencing.

    This is the only case that either side will have as a reference or precedent so I'm posting it as a reference. I don't have a point.

    The non Scottish ones can also be referenced, but as has been pointed out by others, they are not Scottish Law so may not be relevant.

    Doubt it, those two were only just over the age of criminal responsibility at the time of their crime, whereas this one is a teenager. Plus there was no rape or house breaking involved there.

    It'll take place on August 7th but I don't think the decision if he is successful or not will be made on the day, probably a month or so later. I could be wrong though.
