Just watched a documentary about the prison system. It really is designed to get the accused to take a plea deal. In this day and age, with all the info and scrutiny and immediate judgement out there...hoo boy.
I am not saying he is not guilty. However, I am saying he paid his price, seems to be on track with his life, and let's move on. We want criminals to rehab, pay for their sins, and become productive members of society, yes? So far, he's doing that.
Now, if he messes up, different story.
