    This man should be serving life in prison for murder and attempted murder.
    What kind of punishment is that for a confessed killer?
    When he gets out, he’s gonna do it all over again.

    Clearly benefiting significantly by pleading guilty and not wasting the courts time. This was most likely a part of the prosecutor and defense strategy in order to prevent a lengthy trial. Defendants usually benefit from reduced time in jail when they participate in these plea deal arrangement.
