Baden-Clay convicted two years after Allison’s death

Baden-Clay convicted two years after Allison’s death.

Finally, it is over. Two years after the death of Allison Baden-Clay, her husband Gerard Baden-Clay has been given a life sentence for murder and interfering with the body.

Baden-Clay, the 43 year-old real estate agent has been given a non-parole period of 15 years. He has a month to appeal his sentence, if his legal team decides to appeal the verdict.

Baden-Clay’s prosecutor has stated that an appeal is expected from Baden-Clay, as he revealed they could appeal “on a whole stack of grounds.” The prosecutor explains that exclusion of specific evidence may cause the judge to question “precise wording of the charge.”

It has been said that appealing the length of the sentence is not an option for Baden-Clay however, due to the fact that murder in Queensland pertains to a mandatory sentence of life.

All in all, life appears grim for the convicted murderer. For the two year long case, it didn’t seem as if the sentence would eventuate in anything other than being found guilty.
