Ugh... this really pisses me off..
Tyler Allred must attend church every Sunday for next 10 years
OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma teen convicted of manslaughter won't get jail time instead a judge sentenced him to go to church.
Tyler Allred was 17-years-old when prosecutors say he drove while intoxicated and killed his passenger, a 16-year-old friend.
A judge presiding over Allred's case sentenced him to attend church every Sunday for the next 10 years. In addition to church attendance Allred must
graduate from high school and take drug and alcohol test for the next year.
The teen's attorney does not plan to challenge the sentence
Ok so.. the kid drives drunk, kills his 16 year old friend and then gets sentenced to 10 years at church!?! the family must be choked! What does him
going to church every sunday for the next 10 years change? Is that enough punishment? Also has to pass high school... this is a shame for the legal
system in the states!
And of course, his attorney isn't going to try and change the sentence.. its probably the best 'win' he's ever had! No jail time, just church
time! As a side note, to me it would be like going to jail attending church every sunday (lol) BUT, the fact is millions of americans go to church
every sunday and many of them still commit crimes, ALL the TIME, including drunk driving and manslaughter!!! Going to church doesn't stop you from
Is this sentence a form of 'rehab'? Is his attendence going to fix his problems? Then again, is going to jail going to do the same thing? To me, it
just sets a precedent that you can kill someone due to your complete and total negligence and then get a small slap on the wrist.... its insane IMO
