Killers of Stephen Lawrence get life sentences

No Comments Current News

Stephen Lawrence’s killers, who were yesterday convicted of the racist murder, have been given life sentences. The pair will now serve a minimum of 15 and 14 years respectively.

Constrained by laws in this matter, Mr Justice Treacy, in announcing his judgement, clarified that he would have considered higher minimum sentences because of the nature of the vile murder, however the sentences reflect the fact that both defendants were juveniles when they committed the offence. Consequently, Dobson will now serve a minimum of 15 years and Norris will serve a minimum of 14 years.  Two previous failed attempts to convict the pair has now been righted because of new evidence made possible by advances in forensic science. It relates to blood stains found on Dobson’s jacket and a single piece of hair belonging to Stephen Lawrence which was found on Norris’ jeans.

The trial and subsequent conviction brings a closure to one of the most hotly debated racist murders of the twentieth century. Swansea Bay REC would like to pay respects to all who campaigned so hard to bring this result. Swansea Bay REC would also like to think that the unfortunate victim of such racial hatred has left a lasting legacy which has brought about sea-changes in the attitudes of UK public sector. Everyone now knows what Institutional Racism relates to.
