Ok so he confesses to setting a nuclear sub on fire not once but TWICE, and the prosocuter is trying to resolve the case out of court?

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Court documents indicate a civilian shipyard worker accused of setting a fire that caused $400 million in damage to a nuclear-powered submarine has been offered a proposal to resolve his case without a trial. Casey James Fury, 24, of Portsmouth, N.H., faces two counts of arson at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery.

I would see that as domestic terrorism, treason at the least. So why would they not hang him out to dry?

$400 Million in damage on a nuclear sub and it's gonna get swept under the rug, I don't get it? Anybody better versed in law than I have any ideas why they would want avoid a trial?

I would say that since he has admitted to the crimes their is no reason to spend the money taking this to trial.

He said he did it the first time so he could get off work early.

You think he might be a bit nuts?

Had this man not actually admit to the crime the prosecution probably would have done that, but usually when one admits to a crime the prosecution has the decision on whether or not to go to trial.
