Ragland Set To Be Released Today

Convicted killer Shane Ragland will be a free man. Thursday morning, the 34-year old is scheduled to turn in his electronic monitoring anklet.

Tuesday, Ragland pleaded guilty to second degree manslaughter in the 1994 shooting death of UK football player Trent DiGiuro.

Ragland was given credit for time already served.

The DiGiuros still have a civil case pending against Ragland.

    It is a shame the court system in Kentucky is ran by money and politics. But, time and time again it is a proven fact. A murder case is more likely to walk than a drug related case. Operation UNITE is doing a great job in this state don't get me wrong but, cold blooded MURDER and admitting to it and you walk give me a break. It is not about being black and poor the same goes for someone who is white and poor also. Or not so well off to post a million dollar bond.

    What a tragedy that this rich young man gets away with murder. If he was black or poor he'd be about ready for his injection!

    I am incerdibly discusted with this entire trial. Some one once told me he would walk on this because he had the money and influence to get off. I maintained my faith in the legal system. I truely believed that there was no way this >>>>>>would get away with this. Guess I was wrong. I hope beyond hope no one ever employs or assists him so that at least in some sence he can pay for the rest of his life.
