This left in balling...tears tears and more tears. Utterly tragic!
This woman was sentenced to life in prison (plus 4 years)
Now I am an A&E junky (watching Criminal Minds as I type) and have seen many cases where people kill there whole damn family and don't get life sentences, so what the hell is justification for this BS.
I actually watched one recently where a 19 year old boy walked into a dorm room and shot his "bully" in the head 3 times. He served roughly 4 years in a mental hospital and was deemed criminally insane and NEVER EVEN WENT TO TRIAL. He is now a professor at a college and living under an assumed name...Now justify that to me!
Now granted I don't know the facts of her case....for all I know she plotted on dude for a month before you bodied him but the man was her rapist, abuser and pimp, how the hell could that not be taken into consideration...Who the hell was her public defender? See stories like this really make me mad at myself doe not going to law school. Things like this happen everyday.
As a matter of fact a friend of mine was being tried for kidnapping a few years back. The prosecutor was trying to send her up the damn river...Now I am not saying that she did not deserve to be punished but even the judge went off on the prosecutor saying something to effect of "I have seen you come in here and ask for 5 years for people who have shot people and here you are asking for 15 for a kidnapping? What's your justification?".
I have no idea what is going through the minds of these judges when they hand out the sentencing they do but I feel like there needs to be some sort of annual evaluation of cases like this.
