There was a sig­nif­i­cant amount of com­ment on the 12 years’ im­pris­on­ment and 15-year driv­ing ban handed down to Thomas Wain­wright for caus­ing the death of Mull vet Theresa Wade in an ac­ci­dent in 2015. Claire Louise crit­i­cised: ‘Not long enough, it wasn’t his first of­fence and he didn’t even have the de­cency to plead guilty.’ Muriel Searl wrote: ‘Ar­ro­gant and con­ceited ... de­serves ev­ery sec­ond of his sen­tence.’

Denice Ad­di­son posted: ‘ This guy is hav­ing 12 years (which he will prob­a­bly do 6 at most) of his life taken away from him! Poor Theresa has had the rest of hers taken and her fam­ily will be heart­bro­ken for the rest of theirs! I think the sen­tence was very well de­served! I

know peo­ple make silly de­ci­sions but try­ing to blame the girl you have killed for the ac­ci­dent re­ally is the low­est of the low!’ Jacqueline Dou­glas blasted: ‘Any­one driv­ing a car drunk, is pre­pared to take the risk to kill some­one. I call that ice cold mur­der.’

John Lamont said: ‘he ll not re­gret it un­for­tu­nately ,if he had any re­morse he’d have plead guilty and not try and per­vert the course of jus­tice with his pas­sen­ger ,who said Ms Wade was at fault for the ac­ci­dent.’

Mark Robert­son said: ‘Sorry but his act was so gross and reck­less that there was a se­ri­ous risk to oth­ers ... he got what he de­served!’ David Williamson sug­gested: ‘I bet you wish you could turn the clock back!!! But you need to do your time. You will un­for­tu­nately be out with good be­hav­iour in less than your sen­tence,which per­son­ally is wrong. You will re­gret this ev­ery day of you’re life.’

Shawn Hooper of­fered: ‘12 years?! Wow! I know the USA is pretty messed up, but he would have got­ten more time here.’ Mar­lyn Scan­lon wrote: ‘He does NOT de­serve sym­pa­thy A car is a lethal weapon in the wrong hands.’ Tj Telfer posted: ‘Scum!Hope the fam­ily have some sort of clo­sure.Rest in peace Theresa.’ Iain Brown wished: ‘Hope the 15 year ban starts when he is out of jail.’ Elda Rowan lamented: ‘Dis­grace­ful sen­tence, Not nearly enough!’ Nathalie Porter said sim­ply: ‘Good!’
