this is the most messed up thing i have ever heard of.
who knew you could kill your best friend and sit in jail for a whole 9 months and continue on your life. this county needs a reality check. there is no way that rank deserves not to sit a rot in jail for 2 to 5 years.

f***ing obsurd! I swear the Jcounty "judges" are mentally retarded....9 months? that's it?? I've seen people do way less serious and get way more time....it's like they just hand out what they want on certain days depending on their mood...

If you think J County judges are bad, you should come to Mifflin County. They would have released him after the first week and gave him probation as his sentence. It's still ridiculous; I agree.

He WILL be serving a life sentence. How would you feel if you were responsible for a friend's death?? No judge or jury could make a punishment worse than your own personal hell. Don't judge someone when you have no idea what they have gone through, what they will be going through for the rest of time. It isn't something you can just get over. It wasn't intentional. They were just out having a good time that ended tragically.
