As much as the original sentence sucks, this is the correct ruling. Judges
shouldn't be able to change a sentence because it is unpopular.
Maudinefirst off, believe it or not, I agree with what you said. How about if the sentence is unjust?Even then, the
prosecutors and everyone else involved are saying the state's appeal of the
sentence needs to go on, then the state supreme court can remand it back to this
"judge", and he can then properly correct his enormous error.
The judge is now blaming the prosecutor for not objecting after the fact to his
own inappropriate sentence? Classic case of blaming somebody else for one's
@ lost in DC: :)I think the sentence is unpopular because it is
viewed as unjust - and unjust may be the better word to use. This
judge has made some really bad decisions lately. Hopefully once the sentence is
reviewed through the proper channels it will be changed. It may be
time for this judge to step down.
