"Good God! You've got to be joking!" exclaimed Pat Lorbiecki, erupting from his seat after Judge Richard Thorpe handed Emmanuel Wilson a sentence of 12 1/2 years for second-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon. Prosecutors had recommended a sentence of 20 years for 17-year-old Wilson, who admitted wielding the souvenir baseball bat used in the clubbing of 15-year-old Joshua Lorbiecki.

And that was the longest of the four involved... For MURDER. Give me a break. I quote the article: [b]The four defendants, ages 16 to 20, all pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the case.... The state had recommended different sentences for each defendant, based on the degree of culpability. But all four were sentenced to 10 1/2 years -- the [red]low end of the sentencing range[/red] -- with Wilson receiving an additional two years for the deadly weapon charge. [/b] edited to say that really pisses me off

On the other hand, a mother of three could go to jail for fifteen years cause her kids got sunburns. http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=140517
