I’m just home from Pembroke – the Father Daniel Miller sentencing.
First, the judge has reserved his decision until 28 November at 9:30 am.
Second, there were 35 to 40 people in the courtroom. A good turnout.
Third, the victim impact statements were excellent – heartbreaking, but excellent.
Finally – just for now – I had actually tried to post a comment from my iPhone at lunch. I thought I had posted it but it didn’t make it through :( Another learning curve begins!
There is lots to tell you. I need a few moments to get supper on and clear my mind. I find that these are invariably difficult and frustrating days. If I feel that way, how in the name of goodness do the victims feel?
Anyway, one more little note for now. Robert Carew (Father Miller’s lawyer) actually cross-examined the first few victims after they gave their victim impact statements. He honest to goodness did. It was cruel. It was terrible. Yet another re-victimization for those poor souls. I didn’t expect that. I don’t think they did either.
I have a few pictures too – will post later.
Enough for now,
