December 10, 2012

A 19-year-old Kansas University student was sentenced to one year probation Monday after pleading no contest to three counts of battery stemming from an October incident.

Won Mo Kang was arrested Oct. 16 after allegedly damaging property, assaulting an acquaintance and preventing the person from leaving a residence. Kang had originally been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, but was charged with battery, criminal damage and criminal restraint.

Monday's no contest pleas were part of a deal with prosecutors.

As part of Kang's probation, he will also have to perform 50 hours of community service and obtain anger management counseling.

I commented that the DA was unable to bring a conviction to a case that he had clear evidence. I did not swear or violate any part of the usage agreement, looks like I might get probation too...haha

He should be made to pay for the costs of the police, prosecutors and court costs. Hit him hard in the pocketbook, rather than we the taxpayers. We the tax payers can then use the savings to subsidize his education at K.U.

This is pathetic, our DA needs to grow a pair and quit giving people probation for terrible crimes, a female was locked in her residence. Maybe this guy with three times the legal limit will get probation too. What a weak legal system and a weaker DA.

Criminal damage, assault, battery, and unlawful restraint = probation.

Wow.
