Emmerdale: Gus was sentenced to eight years in prison

Tonight, Gus’ sentencing day approached as Rhona promised him that she’d do everything she could to help him out.

Gus wasn’t very optimistic about the sentencing and said his goodbyes to Ivy, worrying that she would be grown up by the time he saw her again.

In court, Rhona started to read out her prepared witness statement but then backtracked. She then started telling the truth about what Gus did and how it has affected both her and her family.

As Rhona admitted that she might never recover from the embryo theft, the judge then sentenced Gus to eight years in prison.

Gus was then taken down to his cell as Marlon condemned Rhona for going against the original agreement, failing to consult him on her latest plans.
