So what does the (25 years) mean? Please help I'm so confusedIn Canada life in prison is life in prison. Article must have fudged the facts. You are eligible for parole after 10 years but given the circumstances I doubt this will happen. I think she's going away for a long time. Also given the circumstances she'd be banned from leaving the country as part of her parole terms (IF she gets it).
Y'know, I don't think she'd actually be barred from entering the US. She's a US citizen. It'd be against Canadian law for her to leave Canada, but the US wouldn't stop her. Or even if they wanted to, and if she just strolled across the border, I'm not sure if that's even illegal. If your paperwork is otherwise in order, I don't think they care how you got across the border.Also given the circumstances she'd be banned from leaving the country as part of her parole terms (IF she gets it).
Short answer yes, long answer, depends on the judge during sentencing.Does time on remand count towards the sentence?
They're probably talking about parole eligibility since the judge can determine eligibility between 1-25 years of a sentence. The article's too muddled to say with all the numbers being thrown around. That being said I'm no law guy so any Canadian lawyer can correct me.
You're a weiner! Or pickle! Yes confirmed in trial she was going to lose her virginity that nite.I don't dispute that she could've gotten laid.
Life in prison up here is weird. But for Lindsay she was sentenced under s. 465(1)(a) of the Criminal Code - Sentencing for conspiracy to commit (multiple) murder(s)How the fuck is 25 years (and parole eligibility in 10) "life in prison"?
Dude, you could never imagine. The civil procedure rules, acts and statutes, man. As I work in the system, I could go on about the wording all day man.See, this is something in the criminal justice system that annoys the hell out of me. The terminology is completely unintuitive and confusing to the average person. I'm OK with complicated topics having complicated phrasing. That's only natural.
LOL, noooo! She was stopped and detained by Cdn Border Services. She is illegal alien. She was not granted entry in to Canada. So, when she is released, she will be deported. Technically, she is on loan to Justice Canada! HAHAHeh, also: is Canada going to forbid her from leaving the country? I wonder if we have any reciprocity in the US with Canada. Like in case she just decided to come back to the US and try to stock up on guns again.
As long as I can get a mod to reopen if anything significant occurs and I can post some updates of anything else relevant and worthy, that'd be cool. Never know, she may neck herself!Not yet. Dust is still settling.
But yeah, soonish I would imagine we'll tie it off when things quiet down.
Yes, she was eligible for parole in 10 years per her formal sentence. She has been in jail for 3 years 2 months. So she is eligible for Parole in 82 months.Does time on remand count towards the sentence?
LOLThe officer noted “she had very bad teeth and her complexion was very bad with
sores on her face. This made me think she may be on drugs (crystal meth/crack cocaine).”
And that was less than a week after she got arrested at that! Like day or two after arrest. I guess she either had no clue what she was in for, or she just crazy in the head. Normal person in her position would be scared shitless or crying. But she was getting off on it!LOL
Also, her dialogue with the undercover officer is so fucking funny. She just couldn't keep her mouth shut, and I can imagine the officer smiling and laughing his ass off while thinking "oh God, you're so fucked; keep talking"
Well that and Canada's lacked a death penalty for decades.Damn.
I did not see her getting a life sentence.
But I could understand why, since she never renounced how she felt even after being locked up for three years.
One of his last posts was in this thread.Well that and Canada's lacked a death penalty for decades.
Still, at least it's not something pitiful like a 5 year sentence and a couple years probation/house arrest. I mean terrorism is still terrorism regardless of if it was a failed attempt. I will say at least she didn't end up like @FuckYou did.
Possibly. As far as I am aware the only stuff under seal is the intimate photos. I do plan to go and request and view the file in the court so will certainly see if it is there and post it and anything else of note. I know for sure there will be the 1200 page book with their convos, but what else may be in the file, I am unsure. I want to see those notes as well as the psych/pre-sentence report.Just because, would it be possible to get our hands on the note her mom wrote?
