Surely you figure out how to 'safely' dispose of a murder weapon prior to conducting a murder, or use an unlicensed (illegal) firearm.
I wonder if he's planned to testify against other people and/or other things?Wonder if we will even find out what the reasons for the appeal?
The ex-soldier who was jailed for 20 years for the planned public assassination of bikie boss Nick Martin has lodged an appeal against the rare sentence, arguing the punishment was “excessive”.thewest.com.au
'“We are trying to suggest that the sentence was excessive but I can’t go into the reasons for (the appeal).”'
'He said up to the point of the murder, his client was “leading an exemplary life”'
'Outside court on Wednesday, Mr Manera said his client was “doing remarkably well, all things considered”.
“Bearing in mind the length of the sentence and the fairly isolated conditions he is living in,” he said.'
'In sentencing the sniper to a fixed term, Justice Stephen Hall said had the offender not promised to testify against Pye in future, he would have sentenced him to life with at least 30 years.'
Unfoirtunately $900,000 isn't an expensive house any more and you don't need a big income to buy one. Heaps of truck drivers could afford it (I'm not for one second suggesting his primary source of income is driving a truck).
Paywalled - probably heart issues from steroids and the covid vacination.Ex-bikie Ricky Chapman, who was caught in the crossfire at Nick Martin’s speedway assassination, has been identified as the worker who died while on shift at Cape Lambert iron ore port.thewest.com.au
'Roebourne Police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Mark Barratt said officers were conducting a coronial investigation into the sudden death and it was not being treated as suspicious.
WorkSafe Commissioner Darren Kavanagh said information received indicated the person may have died of natural causes.'
