What a surprising outcome...
So a robbery in which a gun was used to assault an individual and then said gun was fired during the course of the robbery and the assailant was sentenced to 3 years of hard probation....wow, stiff punishment.....hope the book didn't hurt him when it was thrown at him
They threw a paperback at him, so he wouldn't be hurt.
actually, I heard a small ouch as the hand slapped his.
I cannot freaking believe it.
Why do we even bother to have a DA or judges in this county - let's just let everyone do whatever the heck it is they want to without consequences or ramifications. That's basically what's happening now.
The judge and the D.A. can only enforce existing law. And they are further constrained by the sentencing guidelines.
If you do not like the laws and/or the sentencing guidelines, then the legislators are the ones you need to yell at.
Wow; light punishment................
the guidelines didn't force judge peggy kittel to give probation!
remember, we can vote on peggy kittel's retention. some of this is up to us too.
I wonder, did she also apologize for the inconvenience of bringing him into her courtroom too?
I might have thought the sentence was light too, if I hadn't been in the court room when he plead guilty. I was present to observe an unrelated case. I cried for this kid I'd never seen before. I thought his life was completley over before it started If you'd seen him, you may not be so quick to judge. A prison sentence would have been tantamount to the death penalty.
If he's a big enough boy to carry a gun, rob people, and fight them, he's big enough to accept a penalty commensurate with the crime.
