So, KU football player Reggie Duncan will serve 48 hours and pay $100 for shoplifting, huh?
Nice role model for our kids.
Kudos to Judge Randy McGrath for seeing past the fact that Duncan is a KU football player and recognizing him as the criminal that he is, with priors!
Let's see if the university and the athletic department step up to the plate and take the sentence one step further to include suspension of play for an indefinite period of time. Or better yet, academic suspension for a semester or two.
Wait, I forgot, Duncan is on the KU football team. He'll come out of this unscathed, be painted as a hero, as a victim and turn right around and do it again. After all, he's done it before.
Thanks for trying though, Judge McGrath.
