FullMetalPanda: What's freaking funny is they were expecting him to plead guilty because it was a Tuesday. You can only plead "not guilty" on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.What kind of farked up legal system is this that you're only allowed to plead a certain way on a certain day?
EyeballKid: She said talks revealed that prosecutors wanted a maximum prison sentence of 8 1/2 years...The hell?! Eight and a half, tops, for killing somebody?! How the hell did the Temperance League against Drunk Drivers allow for this nonsense? Shouldn't the minimum be eight and a half years in the stocks before another ten in solitary, with a written apology to the family of the victim daily?
tarheel07: Corpus delicti. How the fark does it work?
Catsaregreen: Umm, I learned this in high school social studies in the 1980s (is that even taught anymore.?).Whenever there's a high-profile killing, there are plenty of wackjobs out there who will actually call and confess to the crime, simply for the notoriety. I can go on YouTube right now and post a confession that I killed Martin Luther King Jr. Doesn't mean I actually did it.
xxcorydxx: wait, he was only a .19? and he says he was "blacked out"?what a lightweight.
Lsherm: xxcorydxx: wait, he was only a .19? and he says he was "blacked out"?what a lightweight.He could have been coming down. The crash was bad enough they probably didn't get a blood reading until after he had been at the hospital for a while, or he got stuck waiting for an ambulance while they worked on the guy he killed.
freak7: I read yesterday that the max sentence he can get is 8 years, is that right?
groppet: So instead of jsut walking into the police station he makes a video. From what I heard about this he was already a suspect and some people think the video is a try for leniency
Lsherm: What police station? He was arrested the night of the accident. They were done with the police.
freak7: He was a suspect in the crash but the investigation was ongoing and he had not been arrested before confessing. Considering he was injured in the crash and there was video, as well as his vehicle being wrecked, it was a matter of time before he was charged. This is nothing more than a ploy to minimize his sentence, as was evidenced by pleading not guilty because they drew a judge that wasn't going to play that game.
