Now it would have been icing on the cake to see him actually serve jail time and he still might. Any violation of his sentencing will result in 6 months in jail. The fact he can never work in law enforcement again in the state of Ohio though puts a serious smile on my face.

I understand exactly what Tam was saying in her comment, that’s how the prosecutor in my case got me to plea out. Charge felonies and then offer a sweet deal.

The plea deal guaranteed a hit and given the particular crime it should kill any future prospects.
