Negligence that causes two deaths and the sentence is probation and a measly fine. Does that seem just to anyone?

Salt Lake City, UT

I am heart broken for the family and very sad about the whole mess. But I am also very angry that attorneys are going to walk away from this mess with bulging pockets of money. My desire would be that every cent of settlement money go to the family. There is no question that the family is entitled to a huge amount of money. But no attorney should be allowed to take 30 or 40 percent or whatever.

What settlement? This is a criminal case. I'm glad he got probation. It was really a tragic accident.

This is a terrible tragedy.

Yes, crimes were committed, but not the type of crimes that prison terms can rectify or prevent.

Coleman Nocks and Raymond Wilson will have to live with the thoughts of the two little girls for the rest of their lives. I think Judge Benson gave the men the right, and wise, sentences.

A fair and just sentence. Nothing will bring back the girls, but this was an accident, not deliberate murder.

If anyone is feeling outrage over light sentences, save that for drug dealers and cop killers.

People who get drunk and get behind the wheel of a car agree with your opinion because they don't intend to kill anyone with their reckless behavior either.


Both of these guys should be doing time at the point of the mountain. It wasn't an accident they were reckless. You have to be licensed to do pest control and part of getting a license is knowing what to apply and how to apply it.

I, as a stranger feel your loss very sad time. But, yes we all have to move on. Congratulation on your new boy.

Great outcome. Let go of the bitter.

Everyone learned a hard lesson. That is life.

Sending him to jail is as lame as the LDS missionary suing the church over a lost finger from dunking a basketball.
