Evil Killer & Stupid Ex-Lawyer Deserve Each Other

"This sort of nonsense just digs the hole deeper for his victims and their families, the daily struggle for them will last the rest of their lives while the vermin who caused their heartbreak mocks us all" - Garth McVicar.

Liam Reid is an "evil and dangerous predator" serving a preventive detention sentence for murder and other heinous crimes. Davina Murray is a disgraced former lawyer who lost her legal career after smuggling an iPhone, cigarettes and a lighter to her client in 2011 while Reid was in Mt Eden prison.

Reid and Murray will be married in Auckland Prison at Paremoremo tomorrow at 10am, and that says Sensible Sentencing Trust is an absolute insult to his victims and their families.

SST founder, Garth McVicar said while Reid and Murray deserved each other the debacle showed that New Zealand’s criminal centred, offender friendly legal system was still alive and thriving.

“What an absolute insult to his victims and their families, the fact this evil predator can even have a life let alone get married in prison while serving a so called ‘Life’ sentence for murder and rape is preposterous”.

“This sort of nonsense just digs the hole deeper for his victims and their families, the daily struggle for them will last the rest of their lives while the vermin who caused their heartbreak mocks us all”.
