So yesterday I blogged about Donte' Stallworth only recieving 30 days of jail time for killing a 59 year old man. I thought it was ridiculous no matter if the family agreed with the terms of the conviction or not. So today I read that a former baseball outfielder by the name of Mel Hall was convicted today of raping a 12 year old girl and recieved a sentence of 45 years.
Now, I am by no means advocating rape is okay. I believe that Mel Hall got exactly what he deserved, but I can't help but compare it to the Stallworth fiasco though in some sense. Mostly because it is two pro sports figures and their sentences came out right around the same time. So, if Mel Hall raped a young girl and got 45 years then shouldn't Stallworth have recieved a little more than 30 days?
In reality, none of this has to do with me and I'm just spouting off my opinions because of boredom. Is it football season yet? Until, then my posts are going to be completely random and hopefully not always dealing with the judicial system.
