H to believe! You shoot AT a cop, you are darn lucky to still be walking this earth! It's called "Attempted Murder of a LEO!" for crying out loud! He should serve 10 years at least for that!
Wow thats so f-ed up
! Punch of bull! Again the system fails, that should have been a felony!!!!!
I thought if a person is goes to trial as an adult, they were sentenced as adult. If trial is juvenile then the person is sentenced as a juvenile. Did not know it could go both ways at the same time. That puts LEO's in more danger.
Actually, given the "sentencing guidelines" in the State of Michigan, he'll do more time at the so-called lockdown facility than he would have in an adult prison. The only sure time he'd have done would have been the two years for Possession of a Firearm in the commission of a felony. He'd probably been sentenced to a year for the felonious assault, with his actual time being about 8 months.
Also, under Michigan law, the sentences aren't consecutive, they're concurrent.
All that said, the prosecutor did screw this up.
Glad they threw the book at him.
Kids can shoot at cops, get a pass, but adults can't?
Yes it definately is Doc,in every place I know.The little scum bags family probably knows somebody.
Correct me if I am wrong. Isn't assault on a LEO a felony?
This was a bad decision on the part of the DA and defense. This punk should be serving hard time, he was tried and convicted as an adult.
AGAIN,the punishment does not fit the crime.This person simply learned that having shot AT an officer and only received a wrist slap will next time kill a leo.Great system isn't it.
