Thompson case incredible

Karl Thompson Jr.’s defense attorneys saying he’s been punished enough is like saying Otto Zehm has been punished enough! What is wrong with the judicial system in this city/county? Thompson should have been in prison for the last 11 months.

This is one of many reasons I didn’t place a vote for even one judge on my ballot. Also, cut off payments to his attorneys. They define obfuscation.
