I have read the helpful Pre-sentence Report prepared by the Probation Officer. I have read the many references that have
been submitted, including one from your daughter. The references amount to an impressive collection of testimonials. I
have listened to the submissions of your counsel. I have heard evidence from the deceased’s widow. In a real sense,
restorative justice has already been achieved. It seems that reconciliation between your family and the deceased’s family
has occurred. (excerpt)
