Holly/Jessica - Huntley guilty

Just seen the news - Huntley found guilty of two counts of murder - receives two life sentences.

It turns out he had a lot of "form" - but Humberside Police failed to pass this information on to Cambridgeshire Police when he applied for the job of school caretaker.

Can't say i'm surprised....

kind of case that makes you in favour of death penalites

I found it interesting his fantastical defense and the definitions of "beyond reasonable doubt" what he claimed was just about concievable and no one was alive to contradict him Yet clearly the jury was correct in finding that beyond any "reasonable" doubt he was lying.

A very nasty case from last year - and the trial's just ended.

Just put him in with the general population instead of special unit. I hope he ends up like Brady, begging to die but being forced to live with his crimes.

Lets fact it, he is going to go through hell

I gather that the verdict was a majority one, with one dissenter I wonder what they think now that they know his past?

It does make me think of the first Birmingham 6 trial where the jury were quite right to convict beyond a "reasonable" doubt based on the evidence they heard, it was still conceivable they were innocent, but you had to believe that both the confessions and the convincing "forensic" evidence were false, and no reasonable person could easily do this.

In this case because Huntely had access to all the evidence against him, he was able to construct a fantastic story that "explained" things. I'd guess if the defence did not know all the prosecution had and Huntely was put on the stand he would have been shot down in flames quickly! Of course the counter to this is that it could allow prosecutions to introdouce dodgy foresnsics that sound convincing and need serious effort and time for a defense to refute.
