The princess turns three tomorrow...
The other morning while getting ready for work as usual we had the morning news on the TV and they reported on two stories from the day before. The first was about a woman who had been sentenced the day before for heroin possession. She had been pulled over in a traffic stop and the drugs were found on her possession during a search. She was found guilty and sentenced to ten years in jail. The following story was about a man that had an argument with another at a local bar, left and came back with a knife upon which he stabbed the victim and was arrested a few days later. The man was found guilty of second degree attempted murder and was given a sentence of three to five years. At the end of the latter story, Jessica came out of the bathroom and asked if I had heard both stories. We were both perplexed as to how a drug possession charge could be twice as long as attempted murder. Later in the week there was a story on a news program detailing the discrepancies in jail sentences as they relate to crimes and it leads to the QOD:
Do you feel our sentencing is fair and proper
