He served 3 of a 30 year sentence.

On appeal a state ballistics/firearm expert was found to have lied, in a manner prejudicial to Ragland.

The 30 year verdict was over turned. Threatened with retrial, he then pleaded guilty to a lesser crime, and got 1 year, but he also got credit for time served. He walked out of the court free.

Parents filed and won 65 million dollars, 3 actual loss of earnings, rest punitive.

Dirt bag moved to Penn., where they wont collect his earnings against the suit. Where hes been arrested at least twice, served several months in jail for drunk driving and driving on a suspended license.

N ice job of parenting Mr and Mrs dirtbag.

What is wrong with the judicial system? Shane admitted that he killed Trent and he gets a slap on his hand! This is ridiculous!! And I dont care how much money his father has. Shane may have gotten away with murder through man's eyes, but not through God's. I am so glad that God is God and not man. He will have the last word! Shane should always remember this, "you will reap what you sow."Pp

This man should still be serving time. It is ashame that a technicality from a ballistics expert during testimony has put him back into society. I read that he tossed a girl off a boat and she got seriously injured by the propeller. And that he has had multiple DUI convictions some while having a suspended license - what a class act. I hope the 3 hits he received from a fellow inmate using a 10 LBS weight felt nice. Scum of the earth. My condolences go out to Trent's family and friends.

CAN ANYONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT KIND OF A SENTENCE SHANE RAGLAND GOT FOR THE MURDER OF TRENT DIGIURO, DID HE GET THE DEATH PENALTY OR WAS IT LIFE IN PRISON WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF PAROLE?
Shane didn't get any time. He is working an doing just fine.. there was never any proof to begin with, thanks to dna the expert witness for the commonwealth dismissed te case--or the prosecutor did--commonwealth attoryney did. the bullet didn't match the gun so they dismissed the case. i have him in mu jail/prison ministry
WRONG!! a plea deal was met, shane ragland ADMITTED TO KILLING TRENT and was set free, time served. did you do any research before you posted this comment?? trent's family was also awarded over 60 million dollars in a civil suit for wrongful death against shane ragland.

i believe that shane is innocent simply because this show only shows what they want of the story. they took it to court! they had no hard evidence to prove that he did it. if they reopened the case it would still prov he is innocent too. it has nothing to do with his dad, shane spoke for himself. the girl was a liar and she writes about it in her diary, it was presented in court too. i would like to defend shane personally becuase the court system is going to do everything they can to make a muder be put away. it took the jury 5 hours to tell the verdict. this has nothing to do with his fathers money. his father gave trents family 63 million dollars! how in the hell do you believe its all about money? have you seen the real papers it was all headlines about his fathers wealth! it wasnt about money it was the fact that they have no evdience to prove he did anything, they have his gun, they had everything they need to prove him wrong but yet they have no evdience that he did it! please get your facts straight! i know the case very well and i knew him personally!

hannahbanana Owensboro, KY: This person is dumber than Ragland. And that's saying a lot....

This case shows that rich people can get away with murder. Shock probation is a device put into the law so rich people can get out of jail.

Watch how much time that son of Governor None does for murdering his girl friend........

Shane Ragland's reckless driving endangered my family on Dec 29, 2012. Louisville Metro police are not concerned with reporting the FACTS. If not for the evasive professional driving of my husband, my family would be seriously injured or dead. Our SUV sustained a direct hit from him. He was definitely driving out of control 85 mph at least when he hit the guard rail and us. I called 911 and stayed near him until first responders arrive- he was ejected (no seatbelt) and landed face first on the freeway. Louisville Metro treated us like the criminal not the victims-I asked about his insurance and the cop said you have your own insurance. He was extremely rude and made me cry. This cop needs to lose his job along with his arrogance. He told us to leave be on our way to Raleigh NC!
We will do whatever we can to make sure this Shane person loses his license so he can never kill again. Not sure if you know but he has 5 DUIs and 21 traffic violations- how is it that he still drives?

I am not afraid of Shane Ragland, his filthy rich parents or the Louisville Metro Cops. Some people have something far more valuable than money or power- ETHICS AND MORALS and Christianity. God will judge Shane. But I will do everything I can in any spare time to make sure this man never hurts another person with a vehicle ever again. Mr. Ragland is not the only person who knows people in high places. I know someone far higher than anyone the Ragland's know.

I hope you do something about this. I've seen your post on a few different forums. I have spoken to Shane since this accident & his story is different from what you are telling. I wouldn't believe the man if his tongue came notarized!! As for the hospital, he wasn't tested for alcohol, denied any use of it, & the police record says that he wasn't drinking. I don't know the truth about that, but would imagine he was, but then again it was fairly early in the day. He says he was heading back home to Frankfort when the accident happened & he wasn't speeding. Did you file a claim w/ insurance for your vehicle? Wouldn't you need a correct police report to do that?
I know information about him & would love to help you in anyway I can.

Considering he was lying face down on the pavement after being ejected 40+ feet I can imagine his version is lacking in details. He WAS speeding and driving extremely recklessly-I drag race- so I consider myself a very good judge of speed. At first I thought his vehicle was malfunctioning- since it was so out of control. But once I got to him I realized it was all him- terribly reckless. My family along with 3 other witnesses all reported the exact same witness statements to your cops. It was the traffic officer that told witnesses he did not need their information! I have all of their names and contact info and I have many pictures of the scene. The police report is riddled with false and inaccurate information. Ask yourself this...if you were a cop on the scene where the driver has 6 DUIs on his record (one from Nov 2012-not even 40 days earlier) would you believe the driver when he says no I have not been drinking? I was the first person who called 911 for Shane- reporting that he was ejected and we needed a bus ASAP. Don't fool yourself- I would have absolutely no reason to give a false statement. We cooperated with officials at the scene, we waited over an hour for our turn to get information exchanged- and the cop was an absolute jerk to us. His report has more errors than truths in it. I would not be taking my time following up on these reports unless I felt it was justified. I hope that Shane puts his life together. Life as a paraplegic will be challenging. Next time you see him, let him know we pray for him often and we pray he will turn his life around.

Shane Ragland's 30 year sentence was overturned on a technicality of evidence given by a ballistics's scientist during the case.
Apparently she said they tested the bullet fragments numerous times and this statement was incorrect - hence the sentence was overturned and he walked free after three years.
When they went to retry the case the main witness Amy Lloyd refused to put herself through the badgering by the defense that she had to endure during the first trial. Without her there was no murder case.
The State offered a 1 year sentence and he refused, they offered him a 6 months and he refused that too.
In the end he agreed to plead guilty to accidental manslaughter and released on time served. Ridiculous !!!
The Di Giuro Family sued him in civil court and won. They have set up a college scholarship fund in Trent's name at the school.
God will punish Shane Ragland IF he ever gets to heaven which I doubt.
