That wasn't long enough - he made many millions off the stuff and probably killed a few !

If you don't know the facts, don't make the assumptions...Tim is my brother in law and he is a great guy with a very nice family who misses him terribly. We all do... Many deals were made with other "co-conspirators" in order to convict Tim: the government is not going to spend all this money on a trial and not get some kind of conviction! The judge must have had some second thoughts as Tim was granted an appeal ON THE SAME DAY OF HIS SENTENCING!!! If Tim "made many millions off the stuff", his family sure as hell isn't seeing any of it...and as far as "probably killed a few"-hahahhahahaaa...that is funny. Thanks for the morning giggles. Actually, if he did, his sentence would probably be LESS!

Its always the other guy who is at fault isn't it? And every time some scumbag doper gets nailed its a conspiracy by the cops and the other bad guys. He got what he deserved. If he wasn't doing the crime he wouldn't have been convicted and sentenced. And the fact he didnt have money for his family only shows what kind of person he really is. As for the appeal, thats the right of anyone who gets convicted, so the fact he got it means nothing at all. If the judge had second thoughts he wouldn't have ben found guilty.

"Truthmaker" (ahem)-first of all, please don't show your intelligence by calling people names, it is intimidating....:/ Second of all, YOU don't know the WHOLE story either so why are you making these statements? Are you afraid to question any type of authority...badges and robes do not necessarily mean truth, unfortunately. Tim took excellent care of his family; however, they do not have "millions"-that is what I was saying. As far as the appeal goes, no, not everyone is granted a second appeal if the judge does not find reason...the defendant would have to go above his head, so to speak to get that appeal-this can sometimes take years. He got an appeal THE SAME DAY HE WAS SENTENCED, which does not happen often, unless for a very good reason.
No, it is not always the other guy's fault, by the way...sometimes the drug dealer deserves to be sent away for a very long time, I agree. But there is such a thing as taking down innocent people with him or putting more blame on someone else than necessary to reduce sentencing-it happens quite often. Open your eyes...our legal system is far from perfect. Why do you think people are let of prisons years after being found/proven innocent? Guess those judges and prosecutors make a mistake or two, also, huh?

I will give you this much. The system isn't perfect. And yes, folks play lets-make-a-deal to try to save their own butt and point the finger elsewhere.
As far as the name calling goes, anyone who deals in that crap is a scumbag in my book. When they choose to deal in poison that does so much damage to others, then they deserve that title. Anything else they do in their life might warrant praise and admiration, but the fact is they did something they shouldn't have done so they lose any respect folks might have had for them because of that. And yes, I have friends and even a relative or two who have gotten mixed up in the whole drug selling scene. I still love them, but have no sympathy for them at all when they get caught.
We will have to agree to disagree on the appeal thing. Unless the law has changed, everyone has the right to appeal a decision made by a court or judge, be it for guilt or for sentencing.

TruthMaker:
I go along with you 100% on your post. In another thread ( Hope Murder) we have a religious nut wanting to give the scumbag another chance. Hang him. Here another poster thinks the dope head should have another chance. BS. Give him all the years possible under the law. He will not sell any from the pen. LOL

Yes I know that drugs are in the prison. I meant that the large amounts that he was selling. I've been around a lot of years and know what is going on. Cheers

It's amazing how many people believe that when a court finds a defendant guilty they are guilty. No offense, but all it takes is an incompetant attorney, a judge with an axe to grind ( like some of the commentors on this site) or cops that want revenge. Before you judge people that are charged dig for all of the facts, like the fact that most informants caught selling are the ones testifying to anything against anyone to get themselves out of trouble. If you honestly believe all courtroom verdicts are correct and impartial then pray you never end up in front of your peers to be judged. TThe innocence project has found how many people on death row that did not commit the crime they were charged with?? take that percentage and apply it to the general population incarcerated and you will realize that some of the people that say they are innocent actually are, the problem is not being able to tell who is and isn't when the police are less than forthcoming about the truth and the prosecutors believe that everyone charged is guilty. As for scumbags, ask yourself why an adult who sells something to another adult gets sentenced to more time than an adult who rapes your child? Prohibition worked so well in the thirtys, the next time you drink a beer think about going to prison for consuming that drug.

BLAH_BLAH You make it sound like more are jailed wrong than right. It's the other way around. Scumbags, yes for most. I think you may belong to some outfit that protects some of the scumbags. I know some people are jailed wrongly, but not many in the drug trade or the sex offenders. The ones that admit their guilt should pull more years than they get. Sex offenders should be hung by their nuts and then around their neck after. Yes it is too bad when an innocent person goes to jail
