What's the story with concurrent sentencing in the courts? That guy who attacked his wife with a hammer and raped her got around 30 years in total but after suspending the last two years of the longest sentence and concurrent sentencing, he's down to 10 years.

Concurrent sentencing is pretty much the norm in Ireland, it was remarkable last week when a judge gave consecutive sentences for the singing priest

‘Singing priest’ gets 7 years for raping boy

Here's something of an explainer

Advic - Advocates for victims of homicide Ireland

That is obviously biased towards one point of view, concurrent sentences have a place but it seems that they are oftentimes abused.
