Comment Re:3 years probation (Score 1) 204

I knew it was going to be a plea bargain. District Attorneys are lazy anymore and would rather give someone a light sentence than risk a not guilty verdict. They bring up a dozen scary charges and then act like they are doing a favor with a deal. If people stopped doing plea deals the courts would grind to a halt with backlogged cases.

All the outrage over the rapist Brock Turner getting six months? He agreed to a plea deal and so did the victim. The judge could only sentence for the lesser crime he agreed to.
