  • We seek help via petition to change Michelle Pearson’s lenient sentences that have been given to her murder. In May 2018 the defendants were charged with murder and manslaughter of Michelle’s 4 children. These sentences do not reflect on the gravity of the heinous acts that caused the death of 5 people. A loving mum and her 4 children.

8 months for manslaughter and 3 years for murder it is not much of a deterrent to anyone who wishes to commit murder/manslaughter if these are the lenient sentences that are being given by the courts.

Where is the justice for the victims and their family?

On the 11th December 2017 at 5am petrol bombs were thrown through a window in to a home of a sleeping family.

With the very best efforts of our emergency services sadly 3 of the children died, Demi (aged 15), Brandon (aged 8), Lacie (aged 7).

Lia (aged 3) was rescued and taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary (ICU), intensive care unit and sadly passed away 3 days later.

Michelle was rescued and taken to Wythenshawe hospital and placed into a medically induced coma in the (ICU) intensive care unit on the Burns ward.

Kyle Pearson and Bobby Harris escaped the fire by jumping from an upstairs bedroom window.

In May 2018 (1st trial) sentenced for the murder/manslaughter of Demi, Brandon, Lacie and Lia Pearson.

Zak Bolland has been convicted of the murders of Demi, Brandon, Lacie and Lia Pearson and attempted murder of Michelle Pearson, Kyle Pearson and Bobby Harris. Sentence 40 years.

David Worrall has been convicted of the murders of Demi, Brandon, Lacie and Lia Pearson and GBH with intent of Michelle Pearson, Kyle Pearson and Bobby Harris. Sentence 37 years.

Courtney Brierley has been convicted of the manslaughters of Demi, Brandon, Lacie and Lia Pearson. Sentence 21 years in a young offender’s institution, to serve ½ of sentence.

Michelle suffered in agony, unimaginable pain for 20 months in hospital, both physically and mentally, from her injuries sustained in the sickening planned arson attack on her home which had killed 4 of her youngest children, before sadly passing away from a long 20-month fight to survive.

The 2 defendants pleaded not guilty to the murder of Michelle; Brierley pleaded guilty to the manslaughter. So now a 2nd trial had to take place the jury had only been out a mere 8 hours and come back with a unanimous decision and found the defendants guilty of the murder of Michelle.

Zak Bolland had previously been convicted of the murders of Demi, Brandon, Lacie and Lia Pearson and attempted murder of Michelle Pearson, Kyle Pearson and Bobby Harris. Now he has been convicted of the murder of Michelle Pearson after a 2nd trial. He has 5 murder convictions and 2 attempted murder convictions.

This should be worthy of a whole life order/term, anything less is injustice.

Courtney Brierley has been convicted of the manslaughters of Demi, Brandon, Lacie and Lia Pearson. Now she has been convicted of the manslaughter of Michelle Pearson. She has 5 manslaughter convictions.This should be worthy of at least a life sentence.

Bolland and Worrall have had their original sentences restarted for the murder of Michelle, Brierley has had an extra 8 months added to her original sentence. We feel like this is an insult to our family and we feel like Michelle’s life wasn’t worthy of a sentence. The 20 months of fighting for her life and the unimaginable pain she endured until she succumbed to her injuries was for nothing.

Judge Mrs. Justice McGowan says Michelle experienced 'unimaginable suffering' after the fire, both physical pain and 'appalling grief’. “She lost any desire to go on living," she says, she 'experienced pain and distress which cannot be adequately described or even imagined'.

Mrs. Justice McGowan said she will put on defendants record/file no remorse has been shown by any of the defendants.

Representations are being made to the Attorney General for his consideration, and a report has been sent to the Unduly Lenient Team for consideration. Please sign and help us get justice for Michelle.
