They can still get to him in prison if they want to. It doesn’t matter where his trial is held.

No, he ‘said’ he had death threats just to go to the mainland where the sentence will be less, as they are used to more such violence over there, being filled more with ‘undesirables’ than here, just.

It actually depends on the judge after jury conviction. Remember Ruth Ellis got Havers known as the hanging judge!!Also circuit judges do a circuit funny enough. He could get a judge from anywhere even from the island!!
