So then each of us will give an account of himself to God. Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.

for all you people that are saying poor maish has done his time let him alone, you should read the article AND comments(in yahoo today) about floyd mayweather being in jail.mayweather is doing real time. maish should not be let out to run his resturant for any reason. jail is a 24-7 punishment not a punishment to appease maish's business. beating his wife(like mayweather did) his extreamly serious but killing somebody while driving drunk is worse.

You know if you spent the same time with your new wife as you spend shooting your mouth off about history you may not lose another wife. Give it a rest jerk off.

I think Maish needs a restraining order against you. Stop obsessing. It's really unhealthy. You have a right to your opinion but it is well past time to keep it to yourself. In case you have not noticed, you are alone in your mission. Nobody likes what happened. Almost everybody gets that the man is in fact paying a terrible price. We also get that for you, it's all about payback. Calm down. WWJD?

Having reviewed this entire thread, I think I can sum up each post to one of three positions:

1) David Maish is a bad person and therefore he should be punished more harshly for what he did.
2) David Maish is a good guy and therefore he should be punished less harshly for what he did.
3) David Maish should receive punishment based on the facts of what he did, without regard to whether he is a nice guy or a bad person.

From the personal reports I've received about Maish's behavior between the incident and his arrest, as well as his initial not-guilty plea, I don't think he had any real remorse. He expressed remorse only after his arrest. I have met him personally and I find him arrogant and self-centered; he does not conduct himself like a man struggling under the crushing weight of guilt. He still has the Hummer he was driving that night, and he has plastered it with pictures of his smiling face and uses it for a catering vehicle. If I were wrestling with guilt about killing a man with a car, I wouldn't want to keep the car, much less turn it into a personal advertisement. These are not the actions of a guy who knows he's made a tragic mistake; they're the actions of an egotist bordering on sociopathy.

So you'd probably think I'd be in with the Group 1 people who think he is a bad person, except that I don't think it should affect his punishment. Regardless of what I think of him personally, he is entitled to be judged impartially, and that means I would pick Group 3 above. His personal character is irrelevant except insofar as it directly led to his offense, which would be hard to establish. You could make a strong case that he's a big jerk based on a lot of these reports, and on jailmaish's experience, but he was not on trial for being a jerk; he was on trial for a specific criminal act and his punishment should be based on that - no extra punishment for his other failings as a human being, but also no going easy because he is a "nice guy" or a "family man." Those things are also not relevant to his culpability.

Personally I don't understand most of you guys who seem to think he should be let off easy when he's clearly guilty, just because he's a "nice guy," and I also don't understand the rest of you who want his whole life to be on trial so that he can get extra punishment for other transgressions in the past. Jailmaish, I sympathize with you, and I agree that his actions with your wife are revealing of his character, but you are undermining your own point by continuing to insist he deserves the book thrown at him because of it. But I especially don't understand those of you who are actively promoting his restaurant and career. I think the "big jerk" evidence here clearly outweighs the "nice guy" evidence, and why would you want to give your money to a grinning jerk, let alone a grinning killer?

My personal feeling is that he got off too easily. If I ran over a man while drunk, high, and texting, I'd expect to go to prison - meaning full-time jail, not just bunking there when I'm not at work or in counseling - and I'd expect to be there a good long time, no matter how nice I was to children and stray kittens beforehand. I still can't decide whether the victim's family are the most forgiving people on the planet, or if they have just been taken in by cynical manipulativeness. But I don't get the impression that justice was done.

My personal feeling is that he received a sentence within the guidelines of sentencing for his crime. Pretty simple really, and I can say it in less than three sentences. The victims family supported it, the rest of you need to move on.

Actually that brings up another thing I don't understand. What bearing does the victim's family's opinion have on his culpability or punishment? If they wanted him burned at the stake, should the court have considered that option? What if they'd wanted him simply let go?

Prosecuting attorneys usually consult with the family to understand their wishes. They take this into account along with many other factors when it comes time to request a sentence. The family was satisfied with the punishment, to me that's all that matters.

dogon nailed it! another observation,grinning jerk,grinning killer. maish/drew peterson both act the same way, both killed somebody.how about the same punishment for maish as peterson? this is all about his actions the night he killed Jimmy,not about the past. For all those people still using his resturant/catering buisness maybe they don't know of any other places in the area that are better than his place(and i bet there are a lot). So would everybody please list these buisnesses so we can be rid of this grinning jerk, killer forever.

Get some help with this psychosis. We know you hate him. We know all the reasons including your personal heartbreak on an issue unrelated to his conviction. We feel badly for the deceased, for you, and even for him. PLEASE get some help so you can get beyond the issues.

If you think Dogon nailed it, you should read it thru again since a lot of it concerns your personal vendetta. Move on.
