What's the chances of this guy ever appearing in court, being convicted and serving time?

Only hope is for the victim's family to keep pressure on though the US Embassy and government. Otherwise will simply fade awa. Thais get away with murdering other Thais so what chance for justice when its a farang.

Not much the US Embassy can do. Many similar cases but the embassy can't do much.
