I would have to kill the SOB as soon as he got out.

It would be well planned, slow and painful.

I would not go to jail, the police would have kill me, and I would die with a clear conscience and a soul at rest.

I'm not quite sure that victim impact statements are a good way to manage sentences and paroles. Why should the same crime result in different punishments depending on how proactive the victim or their family are in securing publicity or sympathy? Sentencing and parole guidelines should be clear, fair, transparent and beyond this sort of influence.

This country is TOO SOFT on crime and that's why there is too much! Eye for an eye and you don't have to worry about parole or housing them any more. The victim doesn't get paroled!

I hope he stays right where her is. Nothing can bring that young girl back, but knowing her killer sits and rots in jail sure would help with the grief.

2025 is far toooooo soon for such a devious, sick, twisted and lousy human being. 80 years old would be tooooo soon but he would
maybe realize that his life was wasted (as it should have been).
I doubt he would reflect on that but an old man with his life at
the end may serve some form of justice. Actually, I hope he dies in
prison !!!!!

Again, system failure! This family should not have to deal with this! What kind of judge did this guy have?? He should have gotten life with no chance of parole! Even the death penalty!

I'm dealing with the Tonya Hunter case! I used to work with her! The system failed her and now this case too? Tonya and this young lady can't come back, why should he be put back into the streets to do this again to someone?

We need to fix this system all the way through! From the first police reports all the way through the trial and sentencing time! The whole entire system!
