'misprision of a felony'.....according to wikipedia, it means an offence under the common law of England classified as a misdemeanour. It consisted of failing to report knowledge of a felony to the appropriate authorities.

This thug deserves the sentence he received. Had he been sentenced locally he would probably have received community service and ordered to attend the Day Reporting Program!

This sounds familiar, one of the burglaries may have been on Nottingham Drive Chambersburg about 2 yrs ago. It was in the paper they were burglarized by thugs with guns late at night and they took their car. People theorized on the message boards here they may have known the victims and were all drug trafficers.

Kensington Heights needs to adopt a no-thug policy. It's a relatively nice neighborhood with good, hardworking people, but unfortunately it has too many rentals owned by slum lords who will rent to not necessarily crack dealing thugs, but hood rats who will secretly move the crack dealing thugs into their apartment once they arrive in town from New York, Philly, or Baltimore.

Our brave men and women in law enforcement then need to raid these rentals for thugs and crack.

EXCELLENT.

Funny thing, for a second there I thought this done by a Franklin County Court ... naw, way too appropriate for crimes like these for sentences here like this.

Kudos to the Judges - Power To The People!

Now, if we could get Franklin County to issue out some similar sentences we'd be putting a hurting on the low life thieves who pray on innocent people. Guess, that's the difference in the Federal system and the county. It is nice to know that most of these people will be behind bars for a long long time!

This does NOT add up.

Robbery means a WEAPON was used in the crime.

This indicates beyond any shadow of a doubt that the individual is a HUGE THREAT to society.

Common sense dictates they should be removed and protected from society for life.

Why do they continue to hand out such light sentences?

If I used a gun to steal from somebody (or for any other crime), I would EXPECT to be put in prison for life as a minimum. No wonder people choose the lifestyles they choose. Maybe we need to take another look at how we sentence people.

The county will never give a real sentence for that kind of crime. They need to justify the millions they spent on the new jail and its programs to show they can rehabilitate natural born criminals.

When you don't pay the drug lord, he sends thugs to your house to "break you legs" so to speak. It's a losing proposition. There are no winners.

The message from the courts is that they don't want drug debt enforcers on the streets until 2117.
