Life? For drugs? But these murderers all are pleaing out for 20 year terms. So very sad to know that to posess a narcotic is worse than taking a human life.

How many deaths resulted from the drugs these thugs were selling? They were all 3 times losers. They had 2 chances to straighten up and didn't.
Let 'em rot.

What the heck? It's all bad! Those drugs cause deaths. Do you not know what drugs do to people? There's no way to justify drugs. Round them all up and keep them.

Did they have an attorney representing them? Seems like an extreme sentence.

Why was there nothing in the Sikeston Paper and the article says 14 others were involved. Does anyone know who there are?

I was requesting more information about this deal and figured someone could fill in the blanks on the case and the Turners. Life is an extreme penalty. Did they go before the hanging judge in Cape We're the cousins ex cons?

Thanks,
Johnboy

I would like to know more also. I can't even find it on casenet. It is strange that the other 14 haven't been named.

You won't find it on case.net because it was a federal case. They got life because of "three strikes" law. All were career criminals with multiple felony drug convictions and had previously served state and/or federal sentences.

This story still makes me SMH. I dont think these men deserved life w/o parole for this. Drug abusers have a choice to do drugs or not...victims of murder,rape and other severe crimes didnt have a choice but they let murderers, rapist, etc... roam freely all the time. JUST RIDICULOUS!SMH

It wasn't life without the possibility of parole. It was life, which is 25 years if they stay out of trouble in the pen. Since they had all served multiple sentences in the past for the same crimes, what do you think is appropriate?
