    Again, I do not think it should matter whether a person is a “family man” with kids or a confirmed bachelor. I appreciate the picture that goes into a full character but kids shouldn’t be part of it. It is somewhat offensive to me that it holds any sway. People are welcome to disagree.

    I think, on the whole, the defence had to say something - they could not say anything at all. I would not dwell on the defence statement, but celebrate the whole life tariff.

    What an absolute relief. Time for the sicko to rot in his jail cell.

    RIP Sarah.

    So this is an interesting precedent now.

    Whole life is not just for a bad murder the public is upset about.

    It has to be exceptional - apart from other bad cases.

    Or maybe he just has to illustrate that he has considered all factors equally. He has considered Sarah's family, and he has also considered that WC has dependents who will never have their father in their lives

    Thank goodness for that. The correct sentence. Won’t bring Sarah back but it is correct. I am sure this coward will appeal it.

    If you think this case didn’t meet the whole life “criteria” — there are guidelines and starting points. There are no hard and fast rules. This case was so outrageous it had not been fully anticipated in the guidelines and starting points. What matters is the level of seriousness of the offence, many factors go into this. In the round, this is a very appropriate sentence.

    Agreed.

    They made the obvious points.

    I also agree with the Judge. If not for the fact that he used his position as a police officer, this would not be a whole life case.

    I'm so so relieved that it's whole-life.

    Couzens taken down


    Asked to stand by the judge, Couzens closed his eyes and was visibly shaking on the spot as he strained with his head bowed.

    When taken away, his head remained down as he was walked to the holding cells.

    Doesn't bring Sarah back
    Doesn't really ease the pain.
    But really , nothing else would have done .
    Personally satisfied but still leaves me feeling very empty .

    I don't understand this, Mr J. A "lifetime criminal" can also be a family man.

    I agree. It's the right sentence. It has the exceptional component.

    Thank you so much for keeping the thread updated with all of this @Silverlink. A tedious, time-sensitive job that's much appreciated. Also to @Ched, @LucyRocket @Sayrah and others who have joined in. Sorry if I forgot anyone. :)
