Dare I say only in..oh nevermind
Caught in the act with her lover, Tracy Denise Roberson — thinking quickly, if not clearly — cried rape, authorities say. Her husband pulled a gun and killed the other man with a shot to the head.
On Thursday, a grand jury handed up a manslaughter indictment — against the wife, not the husband.
Manslaughter…extreme indifference…knowing that your act could put someone else’s life in danger…she should have know her husband would kill the guy…okay, yep, makes sense. I guess it is true that grand juries can indict ham sandwiches.
I just stumbled upon this website of the Attorneys Ruane, widely regarded as CT’s best DUI attorneys. It is a very informative website and provides a host of information. Figured I’d pass it along. I’ve also added it to the Connecticut tab above.

I’ve often pondered about lengths of sentences and how much time in prison would be “tolerable”. What is the line between punishment for a crime and over-punishment? One year in prison can probably seem like an eternity to those serving the sentence, but not much at all to those on the outside. Do sentencing schemes take into account the difficulties of serving a sentence and should they? I’ve looked at a client’s seven year sentence and thought about all the things I’ve done in the past seven years and imagined doing none of them; instead sitting in a jail cell, locked up. I’m not particularly referring to crimes that result in death, but almost everything else. When does a sentence become too long? How do legislatures balance this, if at all?
I’m not sure there is an easy answer – just some idle Saturday afternoon rumination.
The draft will be this afternoon at 3pm Eastern time. Make sure your pre-draft rankings are ready!
(ps: I think one more team is still needed, check the blog above to make sure.)
