Rebecca Massey gets 10 years without parole

By johnboy - 28 July 2011 52

The ABC reports that Rebecca Anne Massey has been sentenced to 16 years in prison (10 without parole) for carving up Elizabeth Booshand outside the Charnwood charcoal chicken in 2008.

Justice Gray said he had to mark the community’s abhorrence with the taking of life but also indicated Massey had good prospects for rehabilitation.

What’s Your opinion?

LOL – 10 years…..?? Really…………….??

You have to be kidding, Justice Gray. The ACT community just continues to be rogered by the inadequate sentencing that seems to ouze from the courts here.

Just what is it that we need to do to get the message across that we have had enough of this? What is it that we need to say that will impress you lot enough to make the sentences stronger, longer?

Let us know what it is that we need to do…………..please!

It’s 16 years. If there is no rehab then she stays at “her majesty’s pleasure” for the whole stint.

Vote out the soft left government we have both local and federal would be a good start.

Gotta say, I expected “Yay – a conviction”, not “Boo – too lenient”.

Yay – a conviction.

I assume that now she has been convicted she’ll stop breaking her bail conditions?

Almost as long as the Norway shooter is facing for 86 deaths.

16 years is the ‘head sentence’ – not the actual time to be served.

It is based on the non-parole period, so if she is a good little girl then 10 years will see her out. Also take off that remissions for good-behaviour.

I immediately dropped into a high-energy roflcopter when I saw the words ‘Massey’ and ‘rehabilitaiton’ in the same sentence.
