Betca if brideysmurfee were sentenced on a thirty they'd want to appeal that every day. Flemming the bad product from a bad seed will hopefully rot and die in prison during the remainder of his 30 year sentence.

They should deny any further appeals, there should be a limit on the number of appeals a convicted murderer gets, it is too expensive and cost the taxpayers money they need for other purposes.
