Not much of a sentence

Not much of a sentence considering what he has done. Should have been at least 35 years with no chance of parole. At least he can look forward to release and moving forward with his life. That is more than his victim can do. Amazing what facing prison will do to adjust an attitude and what it will make you say.

Duh! He hasn't even been

Duh! He hasn't even been sentence yet so how can you say it was not much of a sentence?
Who's to say he won't get that much time.
You and a lot of others are the Idots!!!!


only been charged; not tried. No sentence issued yet. Still in custody until some friend steps to the plate and posts bond.


That Guys Family: Wow. Amazing story! Really Powerful!
