    Isn't that the point that you have a hard time in prison?

    With MacNeill's medical background, he could be an asset to others in prison and perhaps bless someone else's life even if he is in prison.

    I wonder if his wife is "struggling"? No, she is dead, and the jury and judge were convinced that he killed her.

    Enjoy the struggle.

    "Of all the bad things he admits he has done in his life, he finds it quite ironic he was convicted of something he didn't do." Isn't his lawyer implying that he should be in jail, but maybe just not for this reason?

    the guy is a phony. cheated to get both "degrees". the biggest blessing is that he admit that he is guilty then shut up, take the medicine and beg for forgiveness from all that he has damaged.

    Tough. He should have thought of that before he killed his wife.

    His kids and wife's friends and family are struggling.
    If he doesn't like jail, he shouldn't have killed her.

    Plan ahead, Doc.

    Are we all supposed to feel sorry for this guy now?

    His lawyer should've allowed him to take the stand at his trial and testify/explain to the "people" about his wife's demise. Perhaps that would've clinched his "innocence" to the jury and he wouldn't be "suffering" where he's at. Well, he rolled the dice and lost.

    "Of all the bad things he admits he has done in his life, he finds it quite ironic he was convicted of something he didn't do.”

    First of all, he probably actually did do it, and what did he expect? That prison would be a wonderland? It is good he is having a tough time in prison. Second, even if he didn't do it, given all the other bad things he has done that he admits to doing, you know what they say about karma...

    Excuse me, but hasn't he already spent time prison, he should almost feel more at home there,
    then being out where everyone around him knows what he is. So true the statement, " Wickedness
    never was Happiness."
