Up to 40% discount in sentencing
Not only did a man who killed his wife and insisted for 45 years she had abandoned her family be found not guilty, but also could have his sentence slashed due to his early guilty pleas, sparking calls for urgent legislative change.Geoffrey Gordon Adams, 72, will be sentenced for manslaughter after a jury on Friday found him not guilty of murdering 24-year-old Colleen Adams in 1973.
His early offer to plead guilty to the lesser charge means he will be eligible for a discount of up to 40 per cent off his sentence.
