Had he sold her a joint he would be doing 20 years or more. What screwed up priorities we have in our so called justice system. 9 months is a total joke! The judge that agreed to this should be sent to prison for theft of tax payer monies paid while he or she ignores their duties to we the tax payers.
I am really not a fan of dogs in general but seriously large dog meets pot bellied pig equals dead pig unless dog's owner is standing there holding it back on a leash. That is not an indication of a bad dog it is nature taking it's course. Dogs are all carnivores by nature and pigs especially a small pot bellied pig is dinner time to any large dog.
8 months? Seriously? This is what is wrong with our system. Had this been some poor working stiff lying to get medical care for her kids they would be doing 5 years but some well to do doctor/psychologist etc defrauds insurance companies or medicaid and they get a slap on the wrist. How about 5 years, permanent loss of license country wide and reimbursement of all fraudulently obtained funds.
Its the health care professionals committing the most fraud, running up costs for everyone it is time to get serious about some hard core punishments the first time they are caught and make sure they can never do it again by banning them from practicing any form of medical/dental/mental health care any where in the country ever again!
