A 16-year-old girl, Chelsea O’Mahoney, was among four people who kicked David Morley’s head “like a football” on London’s South Bank in October 2004.
Reece Sargeant, 21, Darren Case, 18, and David Blenman, 17, were sentenced to 12 years each for manslaughter.
O’Mahoney was given an eight year custodial sentence.
I’m confused here. They were all convicted of the same charge and all took active involvement in beating this poor guy to death, yet Chelsea O’Mahoney only got eight-years whilst the others got twelve-years?
Twelve-years is a short enough sentence as it is, it ought to be a sentence of life, but I’m especially puzzled and annoyed that one defendant, especially one who was said to have kicked the victim’s head “like a football”, got away with four-years less than the others.
This is most odd.
Oh, wait, I’ve just realised. She has a vagina. Ah, that’s it. Of course! A hairy slit that, in addition to being used for reproductive and urinary purposes, also doubles as a Get Out Of Jail Early (Or Avoid It Altogether) Card.
