Wondering How

United States

People need to read this article and then they will discover that another caught in the act criminal was handed a "plea agreement" that he did not deserve. The facts of this case warranted a first degree murder conviction with no mercy but once again, the easy way out was taken by the "lawyers". I would hate to know that someone could go looking for me for over two hours telling everyone they find that they hate me and when they find me they are going to kill me. Finally find me at my own house, be kept out by a locked door, which they then kick in and shoot me in the chest and kill me and then get caught on scene with the murder weapon in hand and confess to the police and still be allowed to plea to 15 years. I quess the murder victim's life wasn't worth more than that to the "lawyes" involved. Scary thought indeed.

Why would the prosecutor or his office care about anyone else's family. They do not care how people lives have been ruined or anything. All that matters to them is that it is easier to do plea agreement then the work to prosecute someone and make them pay for the crime they committed.

Now the victim's family needs to file a civil lawsuit over wrongful death and be awarded everything Dodrill has or ever will have. That's exactly what happened to OJ Simpson.
Thank Johnson and Milam

We have Johnson and Milam to thank for this one. Milam did not have to offer the deal and Johnson was not bound to accept it. There was a spontaneous confession, there was more than enough evidence for premeditation to be proven.
They just want to take the easy way out.
That is why our county if full of drug dealers and pushers.
It is the easiest way for them.
That is why the police are sick of doing their jobs, they go out and arrest 36 for drugs, and 'deals' are made with 30 of them. So now we have that many more pushers on the street.
And if you think it doesn't affect you, because you don't do drugs, you are wrong.
When they need the cash to fund their habit, or to make another trip south to get more drugs to bring back here and sell, it just might end up being your house that gets broken into, or your car, etc. to get the money.

Thank you JUDGE JOHNSON AND PROSECUTOR MILAM, for helping ruin our county even more than it already is.
hmmmmmmm

All they do is plea bargain. The criminals never get a good long sentence like they should get. Look at all the druggies and dealers when they have a drug bust. They are back out before they can get them to jail and when the trial comes up, they never get anything more than a smack on the fingers! Disgusting, isn't it?
I agree

I agree it is disgusting how the prosecutors office handles cases. It appears they are more interested in getting drunk than in doing their jobs. What happend to Milam and all the talk during the election time. If I remember right everyone no matter what the crime would be getting a 10 day shock incarceration, now we are lucky if they get anything.
WHY Because

Because Milam takes care of his family and friends. That is why nothing gets done to them. He is foolish enough to think they don't go out and brag about what he does to keep them out of jail. This makes him as bad as the ones committing the crimes.

Politic's 'n politicians are like that. Until they're elected, it'll appear they're listenin' to your every word. They'll kiss your butt, to get your support/vote. Then, after they're elected, its your turn to kiss theirs.

I think that it is crazy to get killed over your ex-wife. Cause i know the guy who died he was a really nice person. He didn't deserve to die like he did. Cause he never did anything wrong to anybody he would help you if you needed it. The law will let any body go.
I hate the whole mess

I knew all involved and it's a huge mess. Abe was shot because ROD LOST HIS EVER LOVING MIND..Lisa did not help matters by always changing men back and forth and playn them against each other. Brian, Rod, Abe, of course many more but those where the ones she had at that time. She was married to Brian, sleeping with Rod (she had been with him off and on for years as well), and also screwing around with Abe. Sorry but I have to call it like I see it and I don't think she is so innocent her self. I don't think she told anyone to pull a trigger but damn she was sleeeping with them all. Did she really think something good was going to come out this, I mean honestly. She knew that 2 of the men she was messing with was on drugs and are drunks. You add that to the equation and you are asking for trouble. What a shame that the good man was killed. All Abe done was work and neverd bothered anyone. Shame on you Lisa. If you wasn't messing with all of them then you know this would not have happened! As for Rod and his little driver Jacob they you should get life. A life for a life. As for the Judge and the DA, they both suck ass.. IN MY OPINION!!!!!!!!!!

Well we all know how to get them out of office. Election time is coming. It is sad when a lawyer will tell you that he cannot take a case and go against another lawyer because they are friends. Drama is a required subject for lawyers.. So all it boils down to is who is the best actor/actress. Kinda scary, don't ya think!
