What the heck? 3.5 years for murder? I don't care that he is only 18yrs old...this is a slap in the face for the victims and the victims loved ones.

How can alcohol still be legal? It really does kill yet we have Superbowl ads and Billboards everywhere. What a sad thing that has happened. I feel for the 18 year old kid driving drunk because I did it myself. But if my family member was killed and some drunk only got 3.5 years I would be killing that sunofabiatch myself. Cant the family collect civil damages if there is any to be had.

If he is a "good guy", then I guess I should expect to be sainted soon.

this is a failure on the Justice System. 3.5 years. FAIL.

Dear Judge, you are an idiot and need to be fired.

I have NEVER seen a crash reported involving pot that did not also involve ALCOHOL. EVER.

Has anyone else??

It is an accident, not murder. I have a friend that was killed by a guy that fell asleep at the wheel after working a 14 hour shift. That guy served no time at all.
What is the difference between being irresponsible and driving tired and being the same way and driving drunk? Why does one get no sentence and the other 3.5 years?
