Will be interesting . Not much has been printed up except what the Lady security guard had to say of that night.

If found guilty, what odds the offender gets the 12 years?

    Considering the high profile nature of the case, probably better than usual.

    The more prejudicial comments like that that are made the more chance the alleged offender has of being acquitted because he will be unable to get a fair trial.

    What prejudice? I said “If found guilty”.

    Capital Retro,
    What on earth is prejudicial about those comments? There’s not even a discussion around anything to do with the particulars of the case.

    By not calling him “alleged offender” you have already labelled him guilty.

    If found guilty he becomes the offender
