The attorney general, Dominic Grieve, is reviewing the sentences handed down to two of the killers of Stephen Lawrence after a request from a member of the public.It may well be that this is going to be a 10 second glance at the file, a spot of lunch and then a 'well, it might not satisfy anyone, but the law is the law' type of review. After all, there's (supposedly) a new sheriff in town.
Gary Dobson, 36, and David Norris, 35, were sentenced to minimum terms of 15 and 14 years respectively for murdering Lawrence. The jail terms reflected their ages at the time of the killing – both men were juveniles – and the sentencing guidelines at the time of the murder in 1993.
Who wants to trust the ConDems with this, though? Anyone? Bueller?
