Hopefully, they will serve their full sentences and not be let out on "good behavior".

Right? The remaining portion of the news article says that they are required to serve a minimal 85% of their sentences. GOOD DEAL, although I wish that there was no bargaining chips when it comes to sentences like this where Meth is involved. They should serve the WHOLE time they've been given, in my opinion.

Hopefully these people will get clean and realize their WRONG. The damage they have done to themselves is irreverseable in most cases and their mental addiction will remain, depending upon the severity of their addiction and damage-done. If anyone on here really cared about man-kind, they would pray for these people. Society has imposed its sentence and some relish the thought of long-time incarceration. I believe that it is good they are off our streets. But I also pray that they rehabilitate and once they are released, they become productive citizens, especially the young ones...

This shows the difference between elected local prosecutors and federal courts.

Some do become productive citizens after they've kicked the addiction. Some never learn. It's the ones who never learn that I show no pity.

I understand that meth is a big problem here in ky.although 240 months is 20 years 48 years old he will be in his 70s when let out.to old to cook any more meth after that long off a time.that is what are prison system dose it gives you so much time that when you get out you'er a old man that can't do anything:I understand he had other charges before but was it for making meth?
I in no way say that it's ok to make meth.I have seen people muder someone are hurt a child get alot lest time then this.I had a charge of possion of weed I got a ten day jail stay and a 1000dollor fine.while I was in jail this was like 15 years ago there was a old man in there that had molested his neice and he only got six months in jail.
Ten days in jail for a doopy and just six months for molesting you'er niece dose anyone eles see something wrong with this.we have had people in our own town that have harmed children or killed someone and get less the five years.there are more nonviolent drug offenders serving life sentences then someone molisting a child.
Make meth life sentence,moliste a child get five years non violent drug offenders at that most likely making there own supply.I at least think that a child molester should at least get a life sentence wouldn't you?nonvoilent drug offender life sentence when they were most likely just making enough to keep up there own hapit.something is wrong with this pitc.
yep

Yeah, let's just slap them on the wrist like any other crime. You must think meth is killing this country. With parole and good time .....are you that nuts to think he will serve it all.

You'er talking about fed crime he will sever at Least85 percent.the fed system isn't like county are local they will sever most if not all.then if in there and has to take up for hisself and gets into a fight that's anouther five to ten years this man will be lucky if he ever sees the light of day again.
Although if he killed someone or molested a child he would be out in five or ten years county.with good behavior and porai they might sever three years for killing someone are molesting a child.by the way you can't ever take are give back a life or forgive him if he hurt a child.20years for being a drug addict yea that will help or county.
A nonviolent drug offender severing 20 years in the cell with a child molerster that gets five years sounds right by me how about you?

Drug crimes run in Redmond and Beckmans family. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Every one involved in this knew full well what they were involved in and they thought they would get away with it. There is justice and they will serve the sentence they deserve.
justice served
