Prison tariffs, what proportion of sentence?
From the gov sentencing website :
A jail sentence means more than just time in prison. If an offender is sent to prison, the judge will decide how long he should spend in custody, but time in prison is just one part of the sentence. Offenders always complete their full sentence but usually half the time is spent in prison and the rest is spent on licence. While on licence, an offender can be sent back to prison if they break its terms.
The system of serving half a sentence in prison and half on licence was introduced by Parliament, and is not something that judges or magistrates have any control over.Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
Depends what was the minimum sentence he got for murder as it is mandatory Life with a minimum they serve?Posted 4 years ago
that is the least they can serve before applying for parole and it is not guaranteed
they always remain on licence and can be recalled for minor offences to complete the whole life tarifffootflapsSubscriber
I wouldn’t worry about it. From what I’ve seen on the news lately, by the time he’s out he’ll have converted to Islam, been radicalised, grown a big bushy beard and be plotting the destruction of the EDL
Sounds like the EDL doing a public service by acting as a magnet for Islamic nutters. Just make sure you don’t live next door to one…..Posted 4 years agoMosesMember
Yes, the threat was reported – all part of the evidence against the killer. He was only sentenced yesterday and isn’t a young bloke, so we’re hoping he dies before his release. But Nicky still has this threat hanging over her head.

The reports which I read first hadn’t enough detail. Another paper says that the minimum term will be 28 years. That’s enough. He’ll die inside. Thank God for that.
