As you may or may not know, I am a corrections officer and believe you me there are some inmates who are baffled by this because they're doing 5 years for a bag of weed. Hell, Paris Hilton got 45 days on a probation violators. But not that this makes it any better, he's been suspended indefinitely from the NFL.
I'm sorry but if you drive drunk and kill someone - that's murder. EVERYONE knows that driving drunk is stupid and that you can kill someone - and to get behind the wheel knowing that takes premeditation.
Do get me wrong, I deserve every bit of this and more for my behavior and poor decision making. My issue is with someone driving drunk and killing some one and getting a slap on the wrist. 30 days is nothing. If I can do 30 days then anyone can do 30 days. My issue here is with the law being applied fairly. No one to my knowledge has ever killed someone in a DUI/Manslaughter case in Florida and not gone to prison for at least a couple of years. Several attorneys were interviewed none had ever heard minor of a sentence being accepted by a judge in a plea deal.
Again, I am not whining about my sentence, I believe that I my crime and the sentence I received was perfectly fair considering my crime. I didn't cause any damage to any thing and no one was hurt. I was pulled over for speeding and I got what I deserved. I am all about forgiveness but I am also concerned with fairness and justice and celebs can have the money to purchase adjudication that sets justice aside for them. Where does that leave everyone who doesn't have the money to pay off the family?
