Enjoy your honeymoon.  You should be one haggle toothed crone when you get free.

Joy.

$3,000,000,000 that won't be going to education or the homeless.

I don't think her incarceration is going to be quite *that* expensive...
 
2014-03-28 12:38:31 AM
That's not fair. Her husband only got 10 seconds.
 
2014-03-28 12:53:01 AM
30 years huh?

I guess that will control my impulses when we visit the Grand Canyon next summer.

The average inmate in maximum-security federal prisons costs $33,000 each year.

But she's not an average inmate. She's the highly publicized cliff lady. Her incarceration will cost more. I estimated $100,000 a year because that's roughly what high profile inmates like Charlie Manson cost. God only knows what it will really be. Even at $33,000 per year, that's a lot of potholes we could fix.

doglover, you don't actually mean three billion right? That was a typo. Even if she lived a hundred more years that would be 30 million a year.

$100,000 x 30 = $3,000,000

I mean, you're only off by 3 orders of magnitude, but close enough....

Oh, yeah, that is a typo. I was using the Zimbabwe dollar for a minute there.

I mean $3M USD.

To be fair, those 10 seconds probably felt like eternity to him.

Her main problem was her own mouth. She could have devised a story that would have given reasonable doubt if there were no other witnesses...he was getting too close to the edge, I told him to stop screwing around, and then he fell.

Hard to build a solid case for murder there. Moral of the story is plan murder carefully, and don't give a statement to police without first consulting a lawyer.

It sounds like you have real world experience in this field. Have you considered writing an informational packet on the topic? Perhaps a full-fledged self-help book?

Compared to Charles Manson she's pretty forgettable. I doubt she'll need any special treatment.

You can buy my book on amazon, How to kill your spouse in 5 easy steps and one big fall.

30 years for murder? Wow, I guess there must be a federally mandated sentence reduction guideline for young white females.

If that was a black person, you'd better believe they'd be throwing away the key.

it wasn't going there anyways. Nice thought though.

If you are going to be outraged about the cost of keeping prisoners you should be outraged about the thousands of non-violent offenders we pay to lock up every year, not the one premeditated murderer.  You outrage is strong but it lacks proper direction. Concentrate, focus power.

Perhaps you can claim a crime of passion, your SO cheated on the edge... yada....
 
2014-03-28 06:02:47 AM
Meh.  She got 30 years but it seems unlikely she'll serve even half that.

Get a better lawyer, argue how she was abused.

Smells like a book deal and movie.

Murder isn't a big deal.  There are how many grevious murders world wide every year, and less than 800 executions.

/I just don't know how the families of victims live with themselves after letting 'justice' do it's half-assed job.

If you are a woman, yes. Only men get 1st degree.

Sounds like she decided to finish him off quickly in a simple minded emotional way instead of giving him years of never ending life of living helll filled with ever escalating exaggerated and false accusations , rather merciful for him!

And she got like 32 years per second per second. Hopefully long and arduous seconds but
as has been said, she'll get out on early release. To bad he couldn't stop half way down.

It is not so much being white or female as being able to afford paid lawyers. If she had public defenders, she would have fared just about the same as any other poor slob. The difference is the money.

"The judge's ruling came after several members of Johnson's family asked the judge to sentence Graham to life in prison, CNN affiliate KPAX reported."

Was she trying to get him to travel by light beam?

cheap_thoughts: I'd say he got off easy.


Agreed.

Oh big deal. He didn't get it any worse than the rest of us. It is all downhill after the honeymoon. Some hills are just a bit steeper.

I won't be dropping in to visit her.

When you can't prove the first two beyond a reasonable doubt? Yeah, pretty much. Remember, it would only take one juror who believed her story to take a first down to a second and the bell curve of intelligence has a left hand side.

If only he had a crudely made wooden sign that said "HELP!" tucked away in his pants.  He could have pulled that out in that second he hovered in the air before falling and landed bruised but alive.  Bruised and with stars circling around his head.

"After providing several false statements to law enforcement officers and impeding the investigation by providing false information, Graham ultimately admitted pushing Cody from behind with both hands," prosecutors said in a statement Thursday.

This is an important reason why it's 30 years. And the prosecutors were lucky to get that many, imo. Sure she couldn't get her story straight. She very well might have premeditated it. But, all they have is an admission that she pushed him in the back, gathered during what could have been an intense interrogation. If that's all they have, then 30 years and 2nd degree is a gift from heaven for the state. There's a wide gulf between, "i pushed him to kill" and "i forgot my surroundings and pushed him in anger."

Hope he at least got a few shags in before the big heave-ho.

2014-03-28 07:19:01 AM
So did she have some sort of reason for doing this or is she just a sociopath?
 
2014-03-28 07:26:51 AM
if you are standing near a place where death is possible should someone push you, be careful. never turn your back on anyone. even a wife, a dog, or a child. people are so farking stupid. and trustful. never trust anyone. did you learn nothing?

OK, that's funny.  Very dark, but funny.

It's hard to understand why she even married the guy if she felt the need to kill him after getting married.  Oh wait.  You don't suppose the real motive was to collect a big life insurance policy payoff, do you?

/was probably all about collecting a large settlement, enabling her to be able to do a lot of shopping
