Con­nor won’t risk ap­peal

The Chronicle - - NATION NEWS -

SARA Con­nor has told her lawyers, in strong terms, that she will not ap­peal her four-year jail term for her role in the killing of a Bali po­lice of­fi­cer.

The 46-year-old’s le­gal team spent just 10 min­utes vis­it­ing her in Ker­obokan jail yes­ter­day be­fore emerg­ing to say that Con­nor (pic­tured) was shocked and trau­ma­tised and did not wish to take the chance of an ap­peal that could in­crease her sen­tence.

Yes­ter­day at 5pm was the dead­line for Con­nor to counter ap­peal the pros­e­cu­tion’s de­ci­sion to ap­peal the le­niency of her sen­tence.

Her lawyer said Con­nor re­mained angry at the Den­pasar District Court de­ci­sion she was guilty of group vi­o­lence caus­ing the death of Wayan Su­darsa and was scared of the con­se­quences of an ap­peal.

“In a strong de­ci­sion, she said ‘I don’t want to ap­peal’,” her lawyer said.
