    spiritdancer01 - Who said anything about murder?

    Please please tell me that 25 - 30 months is a misprint and that this man received 25 - 30 years! Otherwise I can't understand how someone that commits murder gets off so easily! Sounds like someone can break the law twice and suffer very little in consequence!
