I would like to thank the person who commented "Also, where would the justice be for the victim or the victim's family? Let a murderer go free to avoid a small inconvenience of serving." I am the victim's sister and I would hate to think that a murderer was released in your town because there were not enough responsible people to see that justice is served.
