  1. He gets 8 years and released in 4 for good behaviour. While she is left with a life sentence after what he did to her its just not fair.

    At least the sex monster was found guilty and sentenced. Perhaps the law is taking crime against trans people more seriously than it used too. Hope the victim is recovering well over the terrible ordeal.

    Should’ve gotten extra time for it being a hate crime (judge believed he was “punishing” her for being transsexual). Still no equal treatment for the LGBT crowd in the justice system, it seems.

    i know both parties well as i am from this area. i feel that kiran desered what he got if not more. the family are complete and utter money grabbers ad are known around the town for a number of negative reasons. matthew clayton, the victim was a lovely person and even had a resonable voice to be heard on the x factor in 2008 i think it was..he has sinse changed his name and can no longer live in llanelli as a female. i think this is wrong as the law needs to be justified…
