Apples and oranges! Nicole accidentally killed her husband while he was driving motorcycle next to her she swerved to avoid another car and hit him and was given 12 yrs for it served 2 yrs was released on bail for appeal on (they didn't take her passport ) $50000 euro and she took of home seems it was set up that way..
Why do you think this is apples and oranges. She was tried and convicted for murder which is exactly the same charge these four face for Lindsay. She was given 8 years I believe but you say 12. She had already served a long period of time waiting for trial just like these four in the case of Lindsay. But as soon as she was convicted she was then released on bail to appeal and allowed to leave the country. There is no difference between what she was convicted for and what these men are charged with.
