our plans

 

we will build new stables and start again.

THIS WAS HOW I FELT WHEN EVERYTHING HAD HAPPENED

BUT NOW AFTER 5 WEEKS HAVE PASSED

WE HAVE TAKEN STOCK OF OUR LIVES

 AND DECIDED THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO REBUILD.

LUCY IS INTERESTED IN HER PONIES AND SO WE WILL

HAVE OUR PLEASURE IN WATCHING HER.

 

AND SO IT IS AN ERA GONE.

 

 

               

AT THE TRIAL

AT THE TRIAL WHICH LASTED 5 DAYS
THE OLDEST OF THE 2 BOYS PLEADED
GUILTY TO ARSON.( ON THE BASIS THAT
 HE ASSISTED THE OTHER YOUTH)


THE YOUNGER BOY PLEADED NOT GUILTY
TO ARSON BUT GUILTY TO BURGLARY.

SO THE TRIAL WENT AHEAD.
AT THE END OF THE TRIAL THE JURY COULDN'T
 COME TO AN AGREEMENT SO THE JUDGE SAID HE
WOULD ACCEPT A MAJORITY VOTE.

THE JURY ASKED THE JUDGE A QUESTION
AND AFTER THEY HEARD THE ANSWER
 IT THEN TOOK THEM ONLY ANOTHER TEN MINS
TO FIND HIM        **NOT GUILTY**


I WAS PRESENT AT THE HEARING EVERYDAY
WITH ALL THE PEOPLE WHO LOST THEIR HORSES.

THERE IS MORE THAT I WISH TO SAY ON MY WEBSITE
 BUT IT MUST ALL WAIT TILL AFTER THE NEXT COURT
DATE OF 11TH MAY 2009 WHEN THEY WILL BOTH BE
 SENTENCED.

SO WE WILL WAIT TILL THEN AND THE NEWS
AND TRUTH AS I PERCEIVE IT SHALL BE TOLD.

14.7.09

my birthday again ----1yr on. --- to the day----------

both boys have now been sentenced.
the youngest got 2yrs community service and
 a tag  on his leg for 3 mths.
the judge said that "even though the jury found you not
guilty. I hold you responsible.  you took the other boy up to the stables.
you lent him your lighter-- and you knew he was trying to light a fire and you
walked away --and  told no-one.so you are responsible"

the older boy has been given 3yrs in a psychiatric hospital
the judge said that out of all the reports that he had recieved about him
 that 3 of the reports were very disturbing..and he was not allowed to make them public.

he commented that after reading all our statments that he was" heartfelt sorry for us all
and that it has been a very hard, complicated and stressfull case".

THE BIG CLEAN UP

THE BIG CLEAN UP WAS DONE BY MY SONS ANDREW

AND WILLIAM AND THEY DID IT ALL IN 2 WEEKS.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO THANK THEM BOTH.

THEY HAVE DONE A FANTASTIC JOB.

THANK YOU ---  BOTH
