Crown Law is launching an appeal in cases where criminals weren’t given the maximum three-strikes penalty.

    Turner - a 29 year old with severe psychological issues, was found by the sentencing Judge to have some prospect of rehabilitation. Of course life in prison without prospect of parole would have been manifestly unjust. I hope Crown Law is not yielding to political pressure in taking these appeals.
