Rouxle Le Roux - consideration of appeal against sentence

Media Statement. Published: Dec 20, 2018

The Deputy Solicitor-General (Criminal) has reviewed this matter, as well as two other counsel within Crown Law. The matter has been treated with urgency, in order to give the victim's family an answer before the Christmas break.

We consider the sentence imposed on Ms Le Roux was appropriate in all of the circumstances of the case, and there is therefore no basis for an appeal. The Police advised the victim's family of the decision this morning.
