"Apparently he is in a right mess at the moment".
Firstly this is Danger with warning lights flashing.
I guess the cops have not got him any help from professionals.
Tell the cops that he will need you to be there, or somebody with knowledge of trauma.
I think he should stay away from the court on sentece day, and maybe you too, if you feel shaky, but I guess you want to see his sorry face go down.
What I would do to be let loose with a red hot poker!
God what I wanted to do with a poker when I stoked the coal at home, I knew exactly where to put it.
What would I do to be in court to watch his ass quaking!
Durham is not that far in a car, but I aint got one.
We could all have had a celebration together.
One thing to think about, is to be careful of emotional thoughts throughout.
Keep safe in yourself, and come here more often to thresh out those thoughts.
Your T should have warned on emotional rollercoaster you my find yourself riding.
BTW, I hope the press get a shot of him going into the court, because he will be carted off in a dog van.
If he lands in Durham jail, it will be Hell fire on Scorched Earth for him.
All this from ste, who does not believe in retribution to keep myself safe in mind, oh well.
