Default Am I missing something here?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Deidra Lane apparently won't have to spend as much time in prison as originally thought for the shotgun slaying of her estranged husband, former Carolina Panthers player Fred Lane.

Lane has received credit for nearly three years spent in jail awaiting trial, meaning that she could get out of prison in less than four years. Lane, 30, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced in November 2003 to nearly eight years in prison for the July 2000 shooting.

In September 2000, she was arrested on federal bank larceny charges for conspiring with a teller to steal $41,200 from a Charlotte bank two years earlier. She later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four months in jail, which she served.

Seven years for killing someone? I know damn well that I would get more than that. I don`t get our justice sysytem. Did I miss something about this killing?

I'm not getting it either! Only 7 yrs for killing someone??? The punishment doesn't seem to fit the crime!

Well, as much as I agree with the sentence...we don't know all the facts of the case. It's easy to speculate.

I`m not trying to pass judgement. I remember the case but not the facts. Self defense is about the only way I could see letting her slide. Jayson Williams, O.J., Ray Lewis, Robert Blake, I mean come on, lets start hannging people.

I am very curious about 7 years for murder too. But as it was said we don't know all the facts.

When I was alittle kid my best friends mother was murdered along with the killers ex-husband. They were re-modeling a house and started dating, and the ex came in shot Dewayne 6 times (4 in the groin) and shot Karen twice. She was out on bond pre-trial and broke into the kids fathers house and poured bleach all over the carpet.....She was arrested again, and in the end she got 11 years, and got out after 9. She is currently a free woman. I never understood that......

My friend later won a huge lawsuit against Miami-Township police because Karen was not found until the cops had been there for like 2 hours......she died from a loss of blood. When the woman started shoting Dewayne......Karen ran for the garage. She was shot as she was opening the door, and she made it out, but the door had an automatic return on it, and it shut behind her. She may have lived if found right away. That was a double murder and only 9 years.....I think she acted crazy, and used the battered woman syndrome or something.

Man, horrible story! I just don`t understand our justice system sometimes. There is NO where else I would rather live. But damn it just ain`t right sometimes.

You think thats bad, A guy I grew up with shot and killed someone in cold blood, he pled out to manslaughter and only did a year and a half... I couldn't believe it when I heard it.

Our justice system is definitely screwed up. My nephew who is 19 (yeah he is 8 months older than me) was with his friends last year or two years ago. They were going to Sheetz in the morning. They all had on bright colored clothing. As they were crossing the street my nephew's friend Nick got hit. He ended up passing away. The lady got away with it. She was a judge's daughter or something. Her license was suspended when she hit him. Yet the lady gets away. Talk about some bullshit.
