A jury of his peers believed they were giving him a sentence of just a year. The life sentence was substituted by Appeals Court judges.

A few days ago, he could have had virtual freedom, if only he had lied (as so many would in the circumstances)! He might have expressed false remorse, but he stood by his actions.

He will now be given therapy. Presumably courage is not normal, and must be cured.
