    I think the judge had her hands tied by the charging decision. Anything higher and I believe it would be overturned on appeal.

    that is very disappointing. She has done 1 year already so will be out in 2 years. I hope those children are all safely adopted before then.

    He says in that article


    Following the sentencing, An NSPCC spokesperson said: “This is a tragic case in which a young girl lost her life at the hands of someone who should have been keeping her safe from harm.

    “Scott Walker’s horrific actions, along with the offences committed by Bernadette’s mum, have impacted an entire community, and we hope these sentences bring some comfort to all those who knew Bernadette.


    There is NO NO NO way he got a comment from the NSPCC within a couple of minutes of them being sentence

    If I'm correct in which I may be wrong that sarah will have to complete 4 years in which 1 year is spent so another 3 years and she will be released. Still not long enough. I wonder if scott will squeel now but I very much doubt it.

    So here's a question for our attorneys.

    If more information comes to light, could more charges be brought against SaW?

    Six years is a travesty, IMO.

    From the Mirror linked above:

    Jailing him on Friday, Mrs Justice McGowan said his refusal to tell police where Bernadette's body is "means she can't be shown the respect she deserves".

    She added: "Cruellest of all, it's likely to mean some members of her family and friends will go on hoping she might be alive and might some day come back into their lives."


    I do so hope family members will be helped to accept Bernie has been murdered and will not be returning. And that SaW in all probability also knows where Bernie's body has been hidden.

    Scott has nothing to lose now so hopefully he will spill the beans and drop Sarah in it.

    I do not think he will admit his own guilt which then means he will not incriminate SaW. I am expecting to hear he is going to appeal the length of his sentence.

    "Sentencing Sarah Walker, the judge said she was “sure Sarah Walker was the guiding mind behind the detail of (the) plan” to cover up Bernadette’s death, adding: “Each defendant was a willing party in that enterprise.”

    They were sentenced at Cambridge Crown Court on Friday and remained silent as they were led to the cells."

    Am pleased the Judge has made it clear that Sarah was heavily involved in her daughter's murder and particularly like the use of her word enterprise.

    The court heard victim impact statements from two of Bernadette's friends today. I'll have a story on that shortly - but - and I've said this before - all of Bernadette's friends should be proud of themselves. They are the sort of friends everyone should have.
