Kind of sad he didn't use cellphone to let police handle situation. Now he will spend time behind bars

thinking of other options that were available. Also very tragic young girl lost her life that had just started.

Interesting that sentencing will be so early as the 21st of August. We see others with sentencing months down the line with pre-sentence hearings and other motions. I guess it doesn't matter when you get credit for time served. Quicker in;quicker out.

Theodor's attorney was less than stellar. She maintains that there were not inconsistent statements. This would not be a factor if Ted had followed advice never to talk to police. Why give a statement after an event? Every word comes back to haunt. Take your time. Consolidate your thoughts. Talk only with your attorney. Don't give the prosecutor any information to use against you. Some of us are taught as youths that the police are your friends. Cooperate with authorities. This is a falsehood. Their only job is to put you in jail. Do not volunteer.
