A jury of twelve of his peers found him guilty but with extenuating circumstances and recommended that his sentence not exceed ONE year.
The judge agreed and he was to serve a confinement of a year ( and be on probation for the rest of his life). The crown appealed and a panel of judges, not a jury, changed the sentence to 10 years minimum. He has served the 10 years quietly without complaint. Now a few ignoramuses on the National Parole Board are not satisfied that he feels remorse, so have refused him parole. That is why there is indignation throughout this land.
