I really think he should have been given more than 7 and a half years and a $20,000.00 fine for a felony hit and run that caused the death of 2 innocent people who were trying to pull a trapped victim out of a burning car when he came flying through at 100 mph.

Where did everybody go?

Well... It's not as bad as it first seems.

Criminally negligent homocide is a state jail felony in Texas. That is, the least level of felony possible. Normally under Texas law, one can only be sentance up to two years for a state jail felony, but due to the velocity of the car and recklessness of his driveing, it was determined that his vehicle constituted a deadly weapon, which in turn bumped the crime up to the equivelent of a third degree felony which allows for up to ten years. Given two years of time served, and a 7 1/2 year sentence... that's 9 1/2 years out of ten possible.

You beat me to it. There's always more facts to a case than what meets the eye, and this is a perfect example of it. Tragedy nonetheless, but punishment is appropriate.
