This guy is a jackass. He gets a real good plea deal then walks in to the judge and has to be the "big man" and tell the judge the victim "still deserved what he got" From his picture he really doesn't look to bright and now all of Rochester knows he isn't. With his bright remarks he probably just bought himself years more time behind bars. I hope it was worth it for him.

Are you a frickin' idiot? He is guilty of a hate crime! The best thing is, now he is going to be taking it from behind just like the people he hates. He commits a hate crime and in jail someone will commit a sex crime on him. Justice is AWESOME!!!!!!! Screw roads, I hope my tax dollars go to him rotting in jail!

"Big Daddy" Sorry but there was sarcasm there. The initial length of time should have been the 15 yrs. Not 4. So, was the offer taken off because the crime committed was one of hate, or for the comment that he made?

Maybe the full term in prison will give this kid some time to grasp the idea of self restraint and control. I'm glad his plea was revoked

He wasn't found guilty of the "hate crime". Probably some assault charge though. Then took the plea and opened his mouth an it was revoked.

I hope the gentlemen that was injured can rest better now. Knowing this guy can't hurt him or anyone else for that matter. Even if Parsons gets 15 years, his victim has to live the rest of his life scared and with heavy medical bills. You are in my prayers...

What everyone's not understanding is that Jesse had no idea Lance was gay. Lance was at the bar with a woman who had been beaten and Jesse thought Lance had done it. He was trying to defend a beaten woman. After they exchanged a few words, Jesse tried to apologize. Lance slapped his hand out of his face. Jesse wasn't right in doing what he did but Lance wasn't innocent either. He is sueing the bar for 2 million, and all his medical bills are being taken care of. Lance was not innocent and this bar fight is getting blown out of porportion. His remark in court was stupid but how can you all say that he deserves 15 years? He has kids and a family that HE SUPPORTS. He never meant to hurt him that badly. They were both drunk at a bar and now you say one mistaken bar fight should get him locked away for 15 years? That's a bit rediculous seeing as rapists get like 5 years in jail, then get out and do it again! This legal system is not just and this was not a hate crime. He didn't even know the kid was gay!!

TWIX. I think I heard you on the radio this morning. You are the self proclaimed “Mother-In-Law” of this bully. You said on the radio he went out at 11:30 or 12:00 at night and this fight happened at 1:00 AM. So was he drunk when he went out or is he that much of a power drinker? This follows suit with his DWI. Now on that you said he refused the test and was charged with DWI. It shows he was CONVICTED of DWI meaning he did it. If it happened as you say where he was “Defending the honor” of another woman (As that beating must not have happened in front of him as he would have gotten the correct guy) and he said he was sorry and offered his hand, I too would slap it away just for him being an a$$hole and sticking his nose where it didn’t belong. So to wrap it up he is a supersized jerk and “He deserves what he will get” if not more. I also agree that the man beaten up should be able to sue the bar and your “son-in-law”. This man should have anything and everything relating to this paid in full and he should also be paid for loosing time and for pain and suffering.

So you were there? Never meant to but did. And Lance should sue an as just cause...

Thats too bad Jesse has a family he supports. I feel sorry for them. It's too bad someone that has the responsibility for supporting a family can't go out for a few beers without getting into a brawl like a teenager. Or stay home with his family! I'm sure things led up to the incident with Lance however nobody deserves to his head bashed in. I read in the paper that this Jesse accepted a plea deal and I was ok with that. Then the next day I hear what he said in court and I wish they could send him away for longer than the max for ignorance. This guy has to be the dumbest person in the news for awhile. What he said in court was a combination of ignorance and arrogance. I call it "aggressive ignorance".
