I was surprised by that as well; but, the accused had one of the best defense lawyers in Edmonton as legal counsel, not sure how that was retained. I believe, given the amount of evidence against the accused, and the knowledge that crown could have technically asked for more then 40 years for the consecutive sentences, is how that figure came about.
