    "Alvonica Jackson was sentenced earlier this year to 360 days of incarceration with all but 30 days suspended. She had also been charged with second-degree theft for stealing money at the Howard Theatre. Campbell was sentenced to 180 days in jail with all but 30 days suspended. The suspended part of the sentences for both is contingent on their complying with the terms of two years of probation following their release from jail, to which they were also sentenced."

    That ain't no man!

    EDIT: Never mind - I need to learn how to read things better. icon_redface.gif

    I don't understand how these light sentences are arrived at for violent crimes.
    The woman in the story held down a 16-year-old boy so her thug boyfriend could repeatedly stab the boy. And she gets 30 days in jail.
    Isn't it great that she can be back on the streets of DC in a month, committing violent crimes against innocent children? icon_rolleyes.gif
    There are people sitting in prison for decades because they had a bunch of weed in their car.

    Could be worse. Two young men were just sentenced in Russia for killing a man then using his decapitated head as a soccer ball before dumping it in the trash. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/30/teens-decapitate-homeless_n_3525771.html

    They face at most 15 years in prison icon_neutral.gif
