    Was that Beckton giving the news report while on this video…or what’s his name? If so…the lip sinking was off several seconds.
    By the way…nice photo shot of him while in jail…as are so many other criminals that have their pix taken in jail. We must have one heck of a COOL JAIL that brings out the best in criminals. Or is it knowing that they will be on Facebook next and be back out on the streets sooner then later, getting “High Five’s” from friends? HA!!!!!!

    prosecuted as a federal offense…the other a state offense. Different sentencing guidelines.

    You are absolutely right! Our justice system is screwed up! He basically stole 3,000 worth of money and this man killed his wife, but the bank robber gets more time…. SMH… Guess its better to kill than ROB…

    So let me get this straight a beats his wife so badly she passes out then he slits her throat, and all he gets is 180 months. But a guy robs a bank and gets 300 months
