Coronation Street fans have shared their impatience for Kelly Neelan’s sentencing decision and pleaded for ‘justice to be served’.
Mollie Gibson plays the role of the teen on ITV’s soap. She was sentenced earlier this month for Seb Franklin’s murder and is currently in juvenile detention.
Thanks to his father and his legal team, Seb’s true killer, Corey Brent (Maximus Evans), escaped with his life.
Corrie fans on Facebook have since pleaded with the show to “hurry up” and ‘see justice served’ by squashing Kelly’s conviction or giving her a more lenient sentence.
They have also requested that Corey’s own sentencing decision be “overturned” and for him to be punished for the crime.
One viewer wrote: “I certainly hope [Kelly goes free].
“She does deserve to get something because she was there…however I don’t believe she should get life.
“I hope that Corey’s decision is overturned because he is a nasty piece of work.”
Another commented: “I just wish they would hurry up and get on with [Kelly being freed and Corey getting sent down].
“Otherwise, it’s going to get boring and people will forget why they did this story in the first place.”
A third hopeful fan concluded. “She will eventually be released.
“It’s a soap they have to see justice served.”
Next week will see Kelly’s sentencing.
