    He absolutely deserves some jail time. Two precious girls are dead because of his failure to take a few minutes and make sure he was doing his job correctly. While this wasn't intentional, it was absolutely negligence. It sends a very clear message to society that when you're dealing with deadly chemicals, there is no room for error and if you fail to read the instructions, you will be held accountable and serve jail time.

    My heart goes out to all parties involved. The exterminator who applied the pesticide as well as the girls family have been through there own hell to say the least. What good does it do to send him to prison? I don't know what the sentence should be. It was a horrible mistake and it sounds like there wasn't enough training given. May God bless the girls family. Such a sad story.

    This is ridiculous. How is sending this guy to prison going to benefit anybody? Prison isn't going to rehab him of anything, though it might teach him to be worse. How does this benefit the poor family or the girls?

    So heart breaking. I agree with woodysworld's comment.

    When are the natural consequences going to be enough for those who supposedly represent us. What good would it do to send this man to prison or jail? He is better able to make restitution by being able to be a wage earner than to be incarcerated so the rest of us can pay for his incarceration.

    He most likely has lost any certification to practice his trade, is most likely being sued for damages beyond his ability to repay and has the rest of his life to contemplate that an unintended mistake cost these little girls their lives, not to mention the multiple heartaches of the parents and those who know all involved.
