Alex Chalk – 2021 Comments on Sentencing of Murderers of Luke O’Connell

The comments made by Alex Chalk, the Solicitor General, on 29 November 2021.

The violent actions of these men cost Luke O’Connell his life. My thoughts remain with Luke’s family and friends who have suffered an unimaginable loss. I hope the Court’s decision to increase these sentences acts as a warning to those who commit such violent crimes, that they can expect to spend a very long time in prison.
