After dire predictions about a possible 6 year sentence, and the clamouring of some here about the repressive moral landscape of Arab and Muslim culture, it turns out that Vince Acors and Michelle Palmer, are going to have their 3 months sentences suspended and will be back in the UK over the weekend:
The two Britons convicted of having sex on a Dubai beach are expected to be back in Britain by the weekend after having their jail terms suspended.
The decision came amid claims they had apparently received lenient treatment only after signing a court document saying they would marry on their return to England.
Michelle Palmer, 36, and Vince Acors, 34, had been given three-month sentences and fined £155 each last month after being convicted of public indecency and having unmarried sex.
About a month in a half in the pokey, by my count.
