  1. Seven years is simply not enough. This kind of depravity can’t be fixed by the justice system. I won’t be surprised if this guy is out in far less than seven.

  2. Actually, wouldn’t that be PRISON not jail? Prison is where one who is convicted is sent. Jail is where they are detained until convicted.
