Justice Carney on Manslaughter

A label of manslaughter does not erase the fact that a human life has been taken in violence, and society views this as the most serious crime of all”
“ It would be expected that a judge in his sentencing would reflect this view. However,this is not happening in reality, and in effect, is further devaluing the victim and human life”

Above is an extract from the lecture given, by Mr Justice Paul Carney, to the Law Faculty in University College Cork on Wednesday ,June 10th, 2008
