This guy is not going to go anywhere near ten years. The media and DA always comment with the maximum sentences possible to strike fear into the
average law abiding citizens hearts. I doubt he even scores enough to get him mandatory prison time yet.
Quote me on this : His attorney will strike a plea for lesser charges and/or consequences, he may serve any period of time less than a year in jail or
may even go straight to probation with court fees and legal fines. He will most likely also be required to complete some psych evaluation due to the
nature of the law broken. Other than probation though he will for the most part be living out the rest of this year a free man outside of jail.
I see people on their fifth violation of drug probation or even felony thefts/car burglaries simply get reinstated. Dont believe me? go down to you
local county courthouse any day of the week and sit in the felony division courtrooms. If you get there early enough you can get a seat without
question and will see just how much of a joke the judicial system has become.
I mean many people even on their first felony burglary/ assualt or trafficking charge still get probation from the judge. Courts are a busy and
crowded place and the judge just wants the day to end as well. You do not get mandatory prison in most states unless you have a certain score from
your priors, or you have really ticked off the judge. So even first offense non-capital felony crimes mostly simply end up on probation. And many of
them wont even go to prison until after at least a third violation.
Just stating from my obvervations.
