I have no confidence in the justice system to punish him beyond accordance. In fact the court of law is full of jobsworths who always drag out cases and sentencing to fill out what should be an easy decision for everybody. Send the dirty buggers down.

Also what gets my back up even more is the freedom for people to appeal anything. When a case is overturned why aren't the original people involved in sentencing punished or dismissed?
By that do you mean that people are not entitled to a defence and the jury are just directed to find guilty regardless. Everyone is entitled to a fair trial, to be able to present a defence, and to a jury being able to find guilty or innocent on the evidence presented.
And, under English law, everone has the right to appeal
