When I lived in Texas it depended on who could afford the best legal counsel. Minorities often got the worst sentences for any crimes. I knew people who got life sentences for possession charges and Texas was leading all states in capital punishment. So, those who got 10 years for capital murder paid for it monetarily. Maybe things have changed in the past 40+ years, but that is certainly the way it used to be there.Off the recent cuff of postings and probably my only post here..
I watch the First 48 on A&E once in a while.. Why is it that Texas has the most lenient sentencing to criminals?
Iv'e seen first and second degree murder charges where the guilty only get 10 or 20 years tops.. This is insane.. How could a loved one of a victim deal with this??
