The judge gave Janklow 100 days jail time for killing the motorcyclist.
Of course, he gets to leave jail during the day for "community service".
I, for one, am tired of double standards for politicians, movie stars, and professional athletes. This judge is a disgrace to the judicial system.

No ****, Tom. Absolutely sucks! If I got caught stealing hub caps off of 1980 plymouth van, I would get 1 - 3 years in the State Pen.

God Bless America, and may she protect her politicians from all mortal punishment!

Jackalope

:evil: It just figures what a great judicial system we have. I hope he is in a cell with Buba and he drops the soap, it wont happen though the jail he is going to I will bet is like summer camp when you were a kid. :cry: :sw1: :sw1: :sw1:

It may seem like a light sentence but in looking over many such accidents over the past 3 years it was found that most received no conviction and if they did it was only probation. Plus I don't think he gets out of jail to do his community service. As one who agrees with the conviction I think it was probably a much bigger sentence that he lost his House seat and can no longer serve in anyway. Had to be a big blow to his eggo. The Rep. from TN who killed a biker had the hywy named after him. Even the biker that was riding with the biker that got killed didn't feel Janklow should go to jail. We all to often spout off about what shold be without knowing all the facts. Main fact is a man is dead....another fact is two families will never be the same.

this isone of the reasons i dont watch the news and generaly dont car about thungs in general.

because so many things are wrong and unfair

and i cant do anything about them but get mad

so i deal with it by ignoreing them

this crap is incorrect, not because the fella was a biker, because he was a human

Jackalope

:evil: Sorry I dont feel a bit sorry for Jackalope or his family, he got off real easy,I do however feel sorry for the poor guy he killed and his family due to Mr. Jackalopes poor driving skills. Can anyone say OJ here. But in the end I think he will get what is coming to him, maybe a drunk driver will hit him and take him out and live to tell about it now that would be true justice. :evil: :sw1: :sw1: :sw1: I would just bet the drunk driver would get a lot more then 100 days in summer camp. Unless its Ted Kennedy that hits him of coarse.

Not enough

I don't care what anybody thinks, his sentence is not justice, and it goes beyond this horrible accident. Our justice system needs to be tightened up and people need to be made accountable. OK....I vented....everybody take care.

if it was Janklow's first driving offense maybe, however he has had over a dozen speed convictions...it caught with him finally in a lethal way. He may have lost his position but a family lost a loved one. I feel he should do some hard time .

Have to agree with Javern...

The guy should have gotten WAY MORE! And jail ain't it! The judge should be serving time right along with him for that lame sentencing. I guess if you want to kill someone by getting drunk and running them down, make sure you do it in South Dakota. Then, at least the defense attorney will be able to cite this case as a reason to let you off easy.
The whole thing stinks like a butt that ain't been washed in days!

FLANDREAU

Steele could have given Janklow up to 10 years in the state prison and a $10,000 fine for the felony charge.

But South Dakota does not have mandatory minimum sentences, meaning judges have wide latitude in handing out punishment. A judge takes into consideration a defendant's past record, life history and the testimony of family and supporters during sentencing. Victim's families are also given a chance to speak during sentencing or submit their comments to the judge.

Janklow has appealed his conviction. Earlier this month, Steele rejected a motion to overturn the jury's decision. Next month, Steele will hear another motion from Janklow's lawyers asking for a new trial.


It ain't over yet folks

After 30 days behind bars, Janklow will be allowed to leave jail during the day for up to 10 hours to perform community service. After he completes his jail term, he will be on probation for three years, during which he will not be allowed to drive.

Taken from the article written in Flandreau, SD.

I didn't make it up.
