The only one I know is Codie. I know for a fact that he isn't a murderer. He has never done anything to hurt anyone, especially that bad. He has three young kids that need him. I hope he gets out soon. How do they know for sure that he was even involved. People can pretend to be someone and say things that aren't true. He's my boyfriend and I love him! I cant wait till he gets out so we can be a family. <3

Kristina, I was just wondering if you attended the trial? I also was wondering if you were aware of the sentance Codie must serve to get out of prison "to be a family" you have a very long wait. My understanding of the judges ruleing is that they both have to serve a minimum of 20 years and a maximum of 50 years before they can even be considered for parole. 20 years is a long time and is a huge part of someones life to sit around waiting. If your that good of a friend to do that, then Codie is indeed a very lucky person. It will be friends like you that will determine how he does his time. Iknow he will need people like you to make it through this. I dont know if there are appeals, but if there are at least he has some hope this verdict will change.

No, I never was at the trial, but I have been talking and writing Codie. He told me that he filed for an appeal and more then likely is getting out in 3-10 years. This was over a little over a month ago.

Thats good. being sentanced for all those years at his age is a bit much I think. I guess it just depends on how you look at it, wether your hoping for rehabilitation or punishment. I think anything over a few years is worthless because prison loses it's punitive effect at a certain point. People just adjust to the change and form thier own life around prison and from then on it's a waste. I'm for rehabilitation and helping people who enter the prison system at his age. It's a waste to keep a person more than a few years at that point. Do you happen to know which prison he was sent to? I would actually like to write him and be of any help I can. I actually think he was not nearly as guilty as his friend who admitted to most likely throwing the lethal blows. What a terrible tragedy this whole thing is!
