Rocky Anderson, 24, recently plead guilty to kill a 10 year old boy while he was driving while intoxicated. The judge is apparently proud of this creative sentence,
A man who admitted to driving drunk when he hit and killed a 10-year-old boy was sentenced to spend Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and the child’s birthday in jail for the next 10 years.
. . .
Anderson will be required to serve nine days in jail every June Â— including June 8, Braden’s birthday Â— and nine days every December and January, including Christmas and New Year’s.
Kill a child while drunk and serve just 180 days in jail? That’s just obscene. Where exactly is the deterrent for drunk driving when you can get off with such a light sentence even for killing a young child?
