If Jacobs was any kind of a MAN he would have told the judge that 6 years of prison time isn't enough for taking a human life,he should have asked the judge for the maximum.He obviously isn't as sincere with remorse with his crocodile teary statement that he claims to be,so at the very least I hope these 6 years are hard for him to do.

I agree with comment above, especially since he's been able to push off any form of punishment for 21 months now!

Jacobs is wondering how he can possibly have to serve a mere 6 years in jail? He should be wondering how on earth he got behind the wheel of a car and killed a young man. Maybe he should be thinking of that young man's wife...who has to spend the rest of hers wondering what might have been.

Something seems so very wrong about this, only 6 years?!?!?!? This guy took a human life and has the gull to make a comment like that, are you kidding me? It doesn’t make sense to me that killing someone gets you 6 years in prison but robbing a bank in Wisconsin lands you 12 years in prison ( http://milwaukee.fbi.gov/dojpressrel/pressrel... ). Seems the value of life in this state is much lower that I had earlier understood.

Wish the Judge would have heard that and gave him the max right there and then for being a complete fake P.Of.S! Obviously he doesnt think it was a big deal from his reaction to the gentle punishment that was handed down. He should be thanking his lawyer!

His lawyer wants to appeal. I can't believe that. If he is truly sorry for what he did to his friend, then he take his punishment that he has coming. What did he expect to get for his punishment, a mere slap in the wrist? That isn't happening, and I hope his appeal efforts are thrown back in his face. He is just being the coward that he is for not taking the responsibility for his actions. He needs to grow up.

No, just the opposite. He thought he would only get probation. Boy was he so wrong.

Is this guy kidding???? He chose to drive drunk, then killed someone, and now he's whining about having to serve six years??????? What a jerk! Someone in his family shoud b**ch slap some sense into his head! He should consider himself lucky to only have to serve the six years. The judge should have made him write out a restitution check to the family of the victim every day for the next six years so that he can't forget about what he did.

So i have been following this case for alittle bit now and to let everyone know, you should research stuff before you start going off on it. Jacobs was never convicted of DUI. He was convicted of vehicular homicide which has nothing to do with drinking. Jacobs passed a field sobriety test and did not appear intoxicated to veteran deputies who administered the roadside exam. That what is really stupid about this case; everyone thinks he was so drunk and crashed. That's not the case. Sorry if I'm going against everyone but i research and find facts before i go off and then sound like a total idiot. As for the media and in particular "Teds Take" you guys need to get facts before talking about it, that's your job!

only 1 post referred to him being drunk,so maybe your research should include reading everyone's posts, all the other posts are about his comment which was absolutely disgusting and I hope he gets a new a z z hole in prison

After a long process Jacobs is finally sentenced... Thank the Lord, however 6 years, should have gotten more than that. Are YOU kidding, you killed Tim who will never be here to experience any events with his family and friends. All because of your stupidity... how can you say what you said??

Matt,
The news story stated that he was driving drunk. If you were to know anything about prosecutors, you would know that they will drop the lesser of the two charges, in this case a dui, and go for a conviction on a more major charge, vehicular homicide. A law enforcement officer may usually be a pretty good judge of a drunk driver, however, they do make errors. A hospital blood test is a much better indicator of a blood alcohol content than a field sobriety test.
This guy is complaining about six years in prison for killing someone, he apparently has a lot of nerve, and probably thinks what he did wasn't that wrong. He not only needs the six years in prison, he needs to be re-programmed mentally.

They don't convict a person of vehicular manslaughter if your STONE COLD SOBER,so he was a DUI (DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE)OF EITHER A)ALCOHOL OR B)COCAINE OR BOTH,WHICH IMPAIRED HIM ENOUGH TO LOSE CONTROL OF HIS CAR.SO MAYBE YOU SHOULD GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU TRY AND PISS ON THE DEAD MANS GRAVE!!!

I am a friend of Jacobs. Hes not a bad person. Hes human, just like every one else. Someone posted on here that the "veteran officers" sometimes make mistakes, well guess what people, so do civilians. Including Jacobs. I realize someones life was taken, but some of these comments on here about hoping Jason should have gotten more of a sentence, I disagree with. It was an ACCIDENT. Don't you think for a second if he could take it back and change things he would? His intentions were not to KILL somebody. There's probably 15 different people that commented on here so far, and I bet at least half of them have done drugs or driven under the influence at some point in their lives. I don't think Jason entered the courtroom expecting zero punishment. You have to understand that lawyers tend to sway thinking and positively reassure their clients that this or that will probably happen. Jason's reaction, I agree, did not look good to the public view. But just imagine yourself in his shoes, being told one thing, and then getting that? Sounds like a lot of people here don't really know the facts. This accident happened in the MORNING hours when Jason was on his way to work, and so was Tim. Jason did not lose control of his vehicle. He accidentally went through a 4 way stop sign on a country highway. He was not arrested at the scene for DUI. You would think that since someone was KILLED that the police would be very sensitive to the sobriety of both drivers. Jacobs passed his field sobriety test. Look at Jacobs CCAP record online and you will find that he has no prior record. Do you research first before you open your yap.

Ok Mr. Friend,then tell everybody what caused Jacobs to blow that stop sign??? Please dont insult this forum with the "early morning hours and he was just tired theory".....Many people can pass a field sobriety test but still be under the influence....Bottom line is he killed someone and thought 6 years was 6 years too long....And if you are such a good friend,why are you sitting back and allowing Jacobs to use cocaine? Hmmm some "friend" I say...
