    Gawd. You are just so intent of using words that are not applicable at this point in the proceedings.
    He plead guilty.
    Three days of testimony happened after that to determine what sentence he would be given.
    You are suggesting a plea agreement, which is not what has been reported.

    You clearly know nothing about criminal law...

    Yes the kid pleaded.

    He wasn't found "not guilty" was he?

    The judge ignored the the agreed deal (obviously) and instituted his/her own (and judges can do that).

    That's what makes this case so insane, or better yet asinine...

    Also, the prosecution is going after him again - I'd be pissed off too if I was a prosecutor given the defense and the sentence.... I mean if it wasn't such a serious issue it would be a joke...

    The best part is that when he's charged with different offenses relating to the crime his OJ Simpson-ish legal team will concoct a completely different defense...

    This kid is going to prison...

    Which also means your personal experience matters not.

    And if you knew of what you speak, then you would know what I said was true.
    So you are just showing you don't.
    I told you one time that statutes were similar across the board...

    If you have a difference/statute I would love to see it..

    Yea, Dahmer got a taste of justice. He got a taste of a lot of other things too.

    Trying to get a serial killer off is pretty immoral...

    I agree, those accused should have a defense, but trying to get wacko's free is just insane.

    I couldn't defend Dahmer, but plenty wanted to.
    I don't think it's insane, I think it's a cornerstone of the Republic. Everyone deserves competent defense, even the guilty. It's only right and just to provide the best defense for all accused.

    I agree with you too, but some people are guilty and some are innocent, the lack of morals involved in prosecuting or defending these people is seriously mind boggling...

    As a libertarian I support your comment 100% but seriously, I cant take any legal position on this issue... Its all wrong!

    Well it's a good sign that you shouldn't be a lawyer. I wouldn't want a system where lawyers do not provide proper defense to those they believe guilty.

    And, the "State" (we the people) deserves a vigorous prosecution, which our friends in Texas are delivering.

    Tarrant County District Attorney Joe Shannon is making a final push to get the driver, 16-year-old Ethan Couch, locked up by asking a juvenile judge to convict the teen on two pending counts of intoxication assault, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

    Never said any differently. Just that it's immoral for a lawyer to take a dive if they think think their client is guilty.
