Wow, that does seem harsh. I wonder what he did.
What is sad to me is that his argument is 'this was my first offense'. Does this idiot really need to be told he should commit a string of robberies? Me? I'm glad this nit-wit is off the street. The true crime is that rather than being on assisted living, he's eating tax dollars in prison.
I mean seriously, what else is he going to make of his life if he's going a string of armed robberies at the age of 18.
