It won't cost anywhere near that. He'll get shanked for being a child killer...
Whoa.....Da Vinci couldn't have predicted it better.Bet you didn't think it would happen so soon.

Except the weapon used was a 'bone crusher', which is larger than a 'shank' generally used for stabbing.'Shank', or 'shanking in generally a thinner knife-like blade, used for slashing, whereas the bone crusher is more like short spear.

ten years is not a light penalty. What he did was despicable. I am merely pointing out that much less severe penalties are given much more despicable criminals. I believe alcholism is a disease of the body and mind. In his case, he must be quarentined for the rest of his life. Ten years in jail. Ten years or more of strict proabation.
Too late, azzhole!

Sonia,
apparently you think child rapists, kidnappers, gangbangers, cop killers should be treated lightly.
This penalty was politically motivated. No question that this crime was despicable.
It is just when we selectively express our outrage it tends to dilute our justice.
I do believe with you that this guy should be removed from society for a very long time.
BTW Alcoholism is a disability that you and I pay for with our SSI SDI. That is crazy.
But still I think that Alcoholism is a disease of the body and mind.
This is Schaefer's ex wife (andrea), or sister (Leslie) or mother (Sheri) who wrote this.

If Anyone is still reading this, you are so complely full of crap and delusional, even for who you and yours are. Have enjoyed your latest garbage in other places.

A. Is there a person out there who thought this idiot sat down at the bar, and planned to kill a little girl on his motorcycle?
B. No!
C. It was a horrid accident and he's the type of criminal we all love to hate, but it was an accident.
Even with the Alcohol, I still believe it was an accident.
D. I honestly don't know how much alcohol played in the accident? Being an alcoholic means your body is used to Alcohol. That's why people have a hard time stopping. Your body is used to the drug and you don't feel the way a non-drinker feels. What is so
hard about this concept? Once the body stops feeling the effects of alcohol, or your tolerance goes up--guess what--your an alcoholic. Meaning
you can drink more than the average person and you
show minimal signs of intoxication. It's not something to strive for. This idiot was an alcoholic. I don't claim to know his tolerance, but putting an arbitrary number like .08% never made sense to me.
E. I worry more about non-drinkers getting behind the wheel after a few drinks. We all know what a few beers does to a virgin liver. "Whoa I can hardly stand up--blah, etc" Most Alcoholics can drink huge amounts and still function--their called
"functioning alcoholics".
F. I still don't believe this guy should have been given the sentence of 24-to life for this accident.
G. Why can a Doctor, or Lawyer get all tanked up and kill someone, but usually walks? Do you people really think all the Lawyers and Sheriff's at the Marin Civic Center don't drink and drive when their over .08%? Most Lawyers love to drink--it's a stereotype, but imo true.
H. Why do cops have one of the highest rates of Alcoholism, but never get DUI's? Except, when they kill someone: A deputy got all liquored up
in Point Reyes on a Sunday. He aimed his Hog home and killed a mom in a van. They only gave him a breathalyzer test at the hospital. He is still on the force!!

24 years is a light sentence. Marin judges cannot hand out real justice. There are just too many liberals in Marin that think with their hearts and not their minds.
I hate to say it, but he will be out in 12-14 years. I don't care what any judge or lawyer says. Technology is what will allow a parole board to let him out. They will say he will never drive again because device xyz won't allow him to drive. The state of califonia cannot afford to keep him in jail this long thus he will get out early. Had the judge thrown the book at him with a 75 year sentence, then he would not have gotten out.
Wrong, f-ckface!!
