Let justice be done

Share Button

Father George Smith will be sentenced tomorrow morning (14 March 2013) at the Corner Brook, Newfoundland courthouse (82 Mt. Bernard Ave.)

Thursday, 14 March 2013:  9 am, courtroom #1, Corner Brook courthouse

You will without doubt recall that Smith’s defence lawyer, Tom Williams, has asked for a sentence of seven to nine years, and the Crown, Trina Simms, has asked for a sentence of nine to 13 years. I say without doubt because it truly is remarkable that in Canada both a defence lawyer and a Crown are asking for something significantly beyond the traditional paltry two years, or house arrest.

Let’s pray that justice is done and that a precedent is set.  Let’s prays that the days of the “Tut, Tut. Bad boy’ are slowly drawing to a close.

Keep the victims in your prayers tomorrow.  If you are within driving distance and can be there to support them by you presence please try to do so.  It means a lot.  It truly does.

As always, please pass on the news when you can, be it by posting a comment, or sending a link to media coverage.

(I have heard that Tom Williams is a brother to former Premier Danny Williams.  Is that fact?  Not that it makes any difference one way or the other, but, I am curious.)

Enough for now,
