Looks like he expected it - he came to court already dressed with his own black and white jailhouse shirt.

He's really no different than every knucklehead who yells, "jump" to someone standing on a ledge or bridge.
Not defending him, just sayin'....

In real life he was a bald, fat slob who toiled in a nursing home, cleaning up what didn't stick to the Depends. I think mine is a better description.

With all due respect to those who think that he was no different than someone who yell's "jump" at someone on a ledge or bridge, I could not disagree more. This man trolled the internet looking for people who wanted to kill themselves and then fabricated a story by claiming that he was a female nurse who was also going to kill herself and offered to enter into a "pact" in order to bolster the other peoples resolve. He also offered helpful suggestions on the most efficacious way of killing oneself. I think that the attorney in this matter is a slimy POS to even suggest that this is in any way an exercise of protected speech. The sentence could have been 15 years and ends up to be less than one year. And by the way, he gets to do his year on the installment plan spread out over ten years. As though a sociopath like this would care that he has to do one day in prison on the anniversary of the people he helped to kill. The judge in this matter deserves nothing but contempt for his brand of "justice". The prosecutor who agreed to this sentence without appeal should find another line of work.

Perhaps we can "encourage" him to try suicide, offering hugs and kisses to him if he is successful. If not successful, we can always encourage him to try, try again.

Great, now this Sicko is going to start his new vocation, a lethal weapon on eighteen wheels. Minnesota Justice ?
