What did this family do in order for this kid to get off with just probation for killing his friend in a crash last December?
This is not justice.
What are your thoughts?

The "friend" was just as messed up as he was. This man was a total meth head. Would the world be a better place if he had been the one driving that night? No!

This isn't the first time ben has been in trouble for his drinking and drug problems. mommy and daddy just send him off to drug treatment and everything gets fixed for him. it also helps that you are a Cross or part of the Cross Mill family.
Just goes to show you that our justice system sucks! He should be in jail doing his time like the rest of criminals! One day mommy and daddy won't get him out of trouble. You would think that killing someone would be enough, but that is McDowell County's Justice System for you!
Oh and just because the other guy was just as bad of a person as Ben doesn't mean that he should have been killed! Ben did wrong and should have paid for his crime!!!!!!

Why don't people just leave Ben alone. He got cedit for 8 1/2 months time served and hes doing 6 months of intense probation followed by almost 3 yrs of supervised probation and on top of all of that has to live with knowing that someone lost their life due to a bad decision that he made. It was just as much the other guys fault as it was Bens. Before you start bashing Ben why don't you check the toxicology report and the blood alcohol level of the other guy and also take into consideration that the other guy wasn't even wearing his seatbelt. The Mcdowell News should be ashamed of itself to keep on writing articles about this incident!!! Let it go and give the family and everyone else involved time to heal. It was an unfortunate situation that everyone needs to learn from and move on, it could've happened to anyone....

Wow! You are so ignorant! No, it could not have 'happened' to anyone. Most of us are not stupid enough to drink and drive, or haul ass down Rutherford Road! He should do time. It doesn't matter if the other kid was as messed up as Ben. If that's the case, why not just kill all the meth and coke heads? When will the court system and powers that be realize that there is no more Cross Mills? Punish the little twerp.
And, this is Really, not really...

You don't sent a gang member to prison for killing another gang member. You give them more bullets and turn them loose. When you dope you lose. U have to balance the value of the loss with the suffering of all involved. I liked the part where you kill all meth heads!! Good idea.

Ben is NOT the only one, They were BOTH in the wrong! You know how many times they have drove each other around drunk or under the influence. He has not escaped justice he is living with the fact every single min, hr, and day. Shame on everyone of call that have bashed his name. People that need help should get help not be locked away like dogs, they are still humans. HE WHO HAS NOT SINNED CAST THE FIRST STONE, you have no room to talk. Stop playing god and trying to say what's fair and what's not.

the friend that died was still a human being! He didn't deserve to die, and Mr Cross made the decision to drive, so he is responsible! No justice for the friend or his family!

How do u think the other guy would feel if it was Ben that died? Someone gettin sent to prison for killing his best friend? His friend being lost because of him will be on his mind forever and that's a huge imprisonment you can't help what happens they BOTH were doing bad things and it just so happens the one without the seatbelt was harmed anyone could have been in that car and died they BOTH were being irresponsible

Yea, we should all leave ben alone so he can drink/drug and drive again. This time instead of killing his best friend (who by the way was not responsible for this wreck because he was NOT driving) he will kill an innocent by stander and yet again get off because of who he is! You are right him killing someone could have happened to any of us. Instead of killing his best friend he could have killed anybody else while drinking/drugged driving! He could have crossed the center line and hit a car head on, or hit someone walking on the sidewalk.
Justice was not served! 8 1/2 months in jail and probation is not justice! The lesson learned here is that the Justice System has clearly told the citizens of McDowell County that there is no punishment for driving under the influence and killing someone from your stupid mistake!
