Trespasser Gets Just 5 Years for Killing Deer Hunter

Shot WHILE field dressing a deer meaning the buck was on its back and this man intentionally killed a man for his deer.
Calling it manslaughter doesn’t give justice to the dead or his family.

3 years for involuntary manslaughter and 2 years for a felon with a gun.

Aim and shooting is not involuntary. He could have and should have gotten 15 years for the IM.

I say give him another 15 years for a felon with a gun.

30 year sentence with 30 to serve.

Better yet, let him ride the needle.

What a travesty and failure of the judicial system! I guarantee this guy has not seen the last of a court room! Not that it will be of any consolation to the family involved but he will never own anything for the rest of his life!!

Should have prosecuted him federally.
Turned case over to ATF.
He would probably have gotten a minimum of 25 years for possessing firearm by convicted felon.

States sometimes drop the ball on these type cases by not referring them to federal agencies.
