fed want a life sentence for the amish beard cutter.

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/02/08/16899647-amish-sect-leader-sentenced-to-15-years-for-role-in-beard-cutting-attacks

he gets 15 years.


CLEVELAND - An Ohio Amish sect leader was sentenced on Friday to 15 years in federal prison for his leadership role in beard- and hair-cutting attacks on members of other Amish communities in 2011.
Prosecutors had recommended a life sentence for Samuel Mullet Sr., 67, who was convicted of a hate crime in September for orchestrating attacks carried out on six Amish men and two women, though he was not present for any of them.

1. Much the same as Romney got away with

Odd that his name is Mullet.

2. I had no idea they asked for life

 

That sounds like way too much, IMO. Actually I'm a little surprised he even got 15.

4. I did know that

 

I figured that would just amount to more years than would normally be given for such a crime. But I don't really know how hate crimes charges work.

Life sounds like a lot to me though. In any case that doesn't matter because he didn't get it.
