Sentencing laws are very strict. Sometimes you think that if you’re a first time offender that the penalty should be light. Wrong! Sometimes first time offenders get 5 – 20 years for their first offense.
Each state is different but each state is serious about crime and punishment.
Jail is not a pleasant place. It was not meant to be.
The saying is “If you can’t do the time, then don’t do the crime!”
