This is complete BS!!! It only shows the complete lack of respect that the Judicial System has for motorcycle riders!

If this physically and chemically impaired driver had killed anyone else, he would be behind bars for the rest of his life!

I don't think so Glideman88, we had another case in Freeborn County where a drunk kid went around a barricade sign, drove into a washout, and killed 2 of his passengers - got 2 years behind bars. And the guy in Rochester who was completely blitzed and killed 5 people, including 2 kids, only got 5 years. Though the guy in this story does seem to have gotten off light since it looks like the going rate for taking a life in MN is only a year behind bars.

The victim was my my Father, and I just want to say that this was not justice, They just let him go like nothing happened, like my father was a no- body. He was a good father and a great husband to my my mother! He left my little brother of 10 years old. What a great system and massage to send to all the drunk drivers! The county didnt want Marvin in jail because it was goin to cost the county to much to have him in there, so if you commit a crime in Albert Lea and your sick, chances are your goin to get away with it! What a great county!
