LDMG, GBC | 12.10.2011 07:42 | Policing | Repression | Social Struggles | World


Up to date on October 10th 2011 but this will change every week

* This list is the the sentencing results of all known [by LDMG] cases of violent disorder plus a few other cases.
* Another 8 people have pleaded guilty to VD and are due to be sentenced this month, October, though all these cases are awaiting judgements in relation to riot cases as well as appeals of Charlie Gilmour and Frances Fernie that were heard last week.
* There are another 40 plus who have not yet pleaded or are currently preparing for trial after pleading not guilty to violent disorder.
* There are dozens and dozens of others who have either had their charges dropped, accepted cautions or bind-overs.
* There are many other sentences that were not as harsh as many of these below, though no other violent disorder cases that we know about. These were some of the most serious sentences that I have pulled out so far.
* If anyone thinks that having more background info on any of the above cases might help their case or their appeal then please get in touch with LDMG – you can email them at: & / or
