Latest news: Stacey Hyde new hearing to take place in the autumn.
Following Stacey's hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice on 26th March, the court has referred Stacey's case to the full court (three judges) for further consideration, so there will be a longer and more in-depth hearing some time in the autumn. This hearing will decide on both whether Stacey will have permission to appeal (the court decided that they need more evidence to decide this finally) and Stacey's appeal itself. (This is called a "rolled-up" hearing.)
This is good news - it means that the court feel that Stacey has a chance to appeal successfully, and hopefully it means that Stacey is a step closer to freedom.
On the 8thMarch 2010, at the age of only 18, Stacey was convicted of murdering Vince Francis, and sentenced to life imprisonment.
This is a miscarriage of justice. Stacey is not a murderer.
