35. Yes but i dont support mandatory min sentencing laws

 

Guidelines are ok but judges and prosecutors should have the option to push for modified sentences based on the specific facts and circumstances of a crime.

Right now the system heavily applies long sentences without looking in the details. This case is a perfect example.

yes using a gun in a crime should be an enhancer option but adding 10 years min in a case like this is just wrong but there is nothing the judge could do about it and there is no way the jury knew the sentence she would get because the law forbids it.
