the judge smiled as he picked up his pen...99 years in the Folsom pen.
It's obvious he loved jail from all his previous acts of stupidity so, what's the big deal? He should be thrilled about getting what he wanted.
If it were simple possession, I'd have said this is ridiculously long. The average prisoner at TDC costs about $38,000 a year to house. Who pays for that? We do. But this guy wasn't just a user. He was a dealer, who moved pounds of the stuff a year, by his own admission. He'd been convicted of this very crime before, and was on deferred adjudication felony probation when he was busted for this. He took that deal.He did this to himself. And in so doing, he fed the nasty addiction of a lot of other people, which results in burglaries (the meth addict's most favorite way to pay for his addiction), and the deteriorating health of his clients. Goodbye, Mr. Preston. See you in about 25 years, maybe.
He will be 139 yo when he gets out. For all of the folks out there that will be praying for the man, it is likely that he still has a chance at living another 830 years after his release.
At the time of sentencing, probably all that was going thru his head was Ned Ryerson in groundhog day, saying......BING!
Good! Good riddance!
BG, is this a conscious Vonnegut reference?
I like the Saudi Arabia sentencing for this crime. Execute the guy and get him off the books. The bad thing about their justice system is that it discourages crime and all but eliminates a need for criminal defense lawyers.
Good gawd, that last guy pictured was born when I was starting first grade in 1965, but dayum, he looks older than my father, and my father's getting close to being 90 years old.
Nothing like that in Wise
I regularly come across cases where child molesters receive probation.
There goes the unemployment rate up again.If he was auctually employed in a real job can he draw it?
"Well, the city supplied a public defender but the judge was Mean John Brown /He came into the courtroom and stared young Johnny down /Well, the evidence is clear gonna let the sentence, son, fit the crime /Prison for 98 and a year and we'll call it even Johnny 99"- DF Bruce Springsteen
