i say hang them twice :-( :-(


KempinaPartyhat Report 2 Apr 2013 18:53

In England and Wales manslaughter has a "discretionary" life sentence, as opposed to the mandatory one for murder. This means the judge's discretion is used.

Lets hope the judge is in a bad mood else they could be out in 3 years! and as for bad time in prison ....they have rights in there to and if anyone should mis treat them they are guarded on a one to one basis!!! at tax payers exspence!!!

Sorry Hang them!

I'm still of the opinion that Mrs Philpott shouldnt have survived,,,,,,,,

horrific,,,I hope the nightmares just get worse over the years locked away till it sends the gulity crazy.

Although they were arrested on suspicion of murder, I was relieved when I read they were being charged with manslaughter, they would have more than likely walked free otherwise.

I have no doubt they will get some grief from other inmates now they've been convicted. Just hope they don't get put on Section 43 where they will be protected.



AnnCardiff Report 2 Apr 2013 17:36

well they won't get as much for manslaughter as for murder - pity they can't have a sentence for each child - then they'd never walk free again

those little faces - makes one weep


AnninGlos Report 2 Apr 2013 17:22

Convicted by a majority of manslaughter, to be sentenced Wednesday. that is all 3 of them.


Chrissie2394 Report 2 Apr 2013 17:20

Charged with manslaughter. Highly unlikely they would get a conviction for murder.



AnnCardiff Report 2 Apr 2013 17:19

were they charged with murder of manslaughter?


Linda Report 2 Apr 2013 17:17

Problem is life does not mean life these days, if I was would the judge it would be 25 years for each child and not to run together.


Chrissie2394 Report 2 Apr 2013 16:58

That doesn't surprise me at all.



Eeyore13 Report 2 Apr 2013 16:58

What a sad day because no punishment can ever bring those children back. I just hope when sentences are passed they're sufficiently harsh.


Linda Report 2 Apr 2013 16:55

Mick and Mairead Philpott have been found guilty of the deaths of their six children
