    i wish the law would be changed. when someone is guilty without a doubt, he should not have the option of a not guilty plea. i know, i know, innocent until proven guilty. it just really seems a waste of court time when in some cases, there really is an overwhelming amount of proof toward guilt. does anyone else feel this way?

    What a thug. I hope he never sees the light of day again! He should have never been let out to begin with and this wouldn't have happened!Another result of the justice system being to lenient!

    He had "multiple arrests since 2001" yet he was a free man when this happened. When will the courts crack down on losers like this and start putting them away instead of slapping their wrists and turning them back out on the town to do things like this???
