Edwards, now 52, will not be released from jail.  He has been behind bars for 3 years. Based on the average annual cost of Maximum Security Incarceration in 2020, should Edwards live another 33 years to 75, his jail incarceration of 36 years will have cost the Victorian taxpayer $6.3 million circa ($175,000 p.a. X 36 years).
