A person like this who would beat a helpless old lady deserves many decades of punishment in prison. Let him serve as an example to others who would even think of such a thing. Despicable!

30 years???...which means he will only have to serve half that...so he will be around 34 when he gets out...I guess the jury didn't want him to spend his whole life in jail... ABSURD!..in my opinion

Couldn't agree more. Save the cost of the bullet and hang his @ss. Now the taxpayers will have to provide room and board for this jerk. On top of that when he gets out he will be an even worse danger to society (anyone care to take a bet that this jerk can be reformed - I say not a chance in H E double hockey sticks).

Now it is about time for someone to come on here and say we don't "know" this guy and shouldn't be judging him - what a load of BS. Those sorts of people should invite this jerk to come live in their neighborhood when he gets out.

Why was there not a perjury charge too when he lied and said he did not do it when his DNA was found all over her home.(I don't know if he took the stand).
In my opinion, this sentence is to lenient.
Only 20 years for the malicious wounding. If he serves only half his sentence, this lady's eye was only worth 10 years in prison.
Even murderers in prison hate pedophiles, they have mothers too and, when they learn what he did to this woman, I hope he has to pay. An eye gouged out would be approiate.
His defense attorney must have convinced the jury that he had a bad childhood and, had faced discrimination because of his race.

The jury recomended 30 years, but it is up to the judge to actually sentence him. If the judge sentences him to the 30 years, he will have to pull AT LEAST 85% which would be 25.5 years.
Virginia no longer has parole where an inmate can get out in half of the time they are sentenced to. The MOST time they can get off of their sentence is 15% for good behavior, and very few of them get that. They weren't law abiding model citizens when they were out, and they are not likely to be rule following model prisoner in there, therefor they are not likely to get much if any time off for "good behavior".
Most prisoners in Virginia pull between 95-100% of the time they are sentenced to

It took a jury three hours to figure out what many would call a BOFFO---Blinding Flash of the F---ing Obvious.

Check out this guy's record in the Louisa County District Court website and see why some say the answer to our judicial logjam amounts to "shoot, shovel and shut up afterwards."

Why should taxpayers have to pay to keep people like this in jail. Certain offenses like this and people who have done something deliberately should be put in front of a firing squad and gotten rid of just to let him out 30 years later and live off
the system even more because he can't get a job because of being a felon. We need knew laws. My brother in law was murdered this past May and the Two guys that done it will sit in jail but to me that is not good enough. hard labor for a while and then firing squad. we shouldn't house people that are a threat to our communities and prison staff as well just get rid of the problem from the get go.

Court ordered PROBATION vice parole enables some to weasel out early. Parole is not the only way to exit prison. This would make for a good NBC29 article.

Disagree! While these two are bad seed do not paint all Houchens with same brush. Some are ashamed of their kin and are really good working people.
