This so called man SHOULD NOT EVER BE LET OUT OF PRISON! He killed four people and disabled a man! He received 22 years for murder of four people. What is wrong with the judges? He should have been put to death. I cannot believe he is going to be let out just to do it all over again. He CHOSE to drink and CHOSE to drive. I think anyone who kills someone after a DUI should be put to death. Any one who hurts a person after a DUI should get life in prison! I am sick and tired of these alcoholics getting out to just hurt someone again. I DO HOPE that this man and others who have done the same thing get killed "by accident" because we sure as hell do not need then in society!

Give him 6 months before he breaks parole. He has paid dearly but the family paid with their lives.

So what does it mean, "his alcohol consumption will be monitored". Does that mean he can or can't have alcohol? Almost sounds like he will be allowed to but it will be monitored, like limiting him to one beer or something. He needs the GPS that can detect alcohol, drugs and his surroundings (there are GPS units that trackers can turn on and hear what is going on so if he's in a bar or something they can tell).
My heart goes out to Nadine Milford and her family. She is an incredible woman and if you ever have the opportunity to hear her speak, please do so.

This is just terrible! This guy killed four people and he gets freedom? Where is the justice in that? An entire family was almost wiped out for crying out loud! No wonder New Mexico is thought of as a joke!

How is 17 years "nearly half" of 22.....that doesn't make sense, I'm no mathematician but I was under the impression that half of 22 was 11, and that makes 17 MORE than half of 22...

Accurate reporting? Hmm...

house didn't begin his prison sentence in 1992. a lengthy appeals process delayed that. he started serving time in '98, if I remember correctly.

Because he didn't get sentenced and go to jail right away.

His alcohol consumption will be monitored. Interesting considering other drunk drivers have multiple DUIs and get away with driving while drunk.

This guy served prison time because the deceased members family pushed, and pushed to have something done. Good for them!!

Wow! your statement "I DO HOPE that this man and others who have done the same thing get killed "by accident" is very strong.

I hope you don't consider yourself a Christian too. The Husband has forgiven Mr. House. He is a true Christian who should be admired and reapected. Gordon House has had ample to reflect on his actions.

I am not condoning his actions, but he has served time and hopefully he will make a difference by admonishing those who may drink and drive.

Regarding your post, you need to have a drink and and something else that's pretty stiff.

Well the laws the law, I think he should stay in there too but the people everyone votes for let him out, don't like it? Next time pick better judges last time I checked they are elected so all the outcry really comes back to the beloved public servants you voted for, ha karmas a bitch ain't she?

A bad choice led to a horrible accident. No intent there. He paid for his crimes now he deserves his chance.

Thank you for allowing our son back to our home. Mr. House is our son. We love him very much. What you all say in a bad way about our son, we have no ears, sight or room in our heart for them. We suggest you put your energy to better use. As for us, our arms are open and ready to embrace our son to welcome him home.

House did his time, now let the man go on and live his life. Far more worse criminals getting off the hook around the state and throughout the country. People wishing or hoping death on people just don't make sense.

So should the high profile lawyer who killed Tenorio in Santa Fe also spend life in prison too?

I'm certain Mr Cravens wishes he too could embrace his wife, and daughters...
