A convicted rapist who threatened to shoot his nieces and eat their hearts has had his prison sentence for threatening to kill reduced by four months…
Justice Anthony Randerson said: “On the face of it, it does seem a pretty stiff sentence. He was in prison, he couldn’t carry out (the threat) for a number of years.”
The Court of Appeal has now quashed Faaleaga’s sentence and replaced it with a reduced sentence of six months.
With this sentence:
The founder of New Zealand’s first cannabis club, Dakta Green, has had his jail sentence more than doubled following an appeal by the Solicitor General.
Green, 61, who ran The Daktory in New Lynn, Auckland, for more than 30 months, was sentenced in June to eight months’ jail for selling cannabis, possession of cannabis and allowing a premises to be used for commission of a crime against the Misuse of Drugs Act…
The Solicitor General appealed the sentence last month and in a decision recently released the Court of Appeal quashed Green’s orginal sentence and increased his jail term to 23 months.
Anyone else think something is very wrong here?
