Prosecutors and defense attorneys can agree on a sentence, but judges are not bound by their agreements. The judge ultimately imposes the sentence he wants.

AS for the 6th grade. Congratulations. I see your readin' and writin' ain't too good, but I'm sure you can cipher.

As for your invitation to fight, I'll pass.

Another day.....another slap on the wrist.

I hope Eramat files some kind of civil suit to reclaim the 14K.

gonefromMOV, was at the top of my class in the 6th, both academics and ranked second in the President's Council on Physicle Fitness Program. Work very hard with my hands now and love every minute of it. Probably "slapped" you around a bit back then, for running your big mouth. I'm glad to see the stupid ones leave this area! PLEA BARGANS ARE MADE IN THE PROSECUTOR'S OFFICE ,BIG MOUTH!The judges heavily depend on the prosecutor for information in his sentencing process,(TO DO THE RIGHT THING, TO SERVE AND PROTECT) BIG MOUTH! I may need to take 6th grade over again, due to my grammer. But you, BIG MOUTH clearly don't know what you're talking about. where I come from, "if ya want some, ya gotta bring some, or keep your 'BIG MOUTH SHUT! In other words, BACK IT UP like I can......anytime, any place, anywhere. even a 6th grader knows all deals are made by the prosecutor's office before the judge gets it! So what did you and Jimmy-Poo have for dinner last night? GETS IT?

I really hoped that Burnworth we be a change for the better as a judge. So far its not looking good for the sentences that I have read in the paper and I have never seen inmates be aloud to set a time frame of when the will report to jail. They are convicts! Good god put them in jail.

Doggonit: Sixth grade civics tells us that the judge hands down sentences, not the prosecutor.

If you're younger than a sixth grader, I applaud your civic interest. Otherwise, you ought to retake the sixth grade.

Jeez, Times, can't you ever get a story straight?? You remind me of WTAP! Thanks again Jim and the rest of you idiots in the prosecutor's office! These guys were practically going all over the country stealing, you had them dead to rights, and once again you gave them the lightest sentence possible. Jim must have needed a favor or needed to borrow the equipment trailer they stole from Columbus.
