They caught him, Now lets see if the judge does his part or throws him another sissy sentence.

Well, first he has to be convicted. If he is convicted of robbery, the maximum sentence possible for robbery is 8 years - the maximum practical sentence is 7 years since the 8 year maximum sentence triggers an AUTOMATIC appeal review of each and every part of the process which could result in the release of the criminal.

understatement

time for another slap on the wrist punishment instead of locking them up for year. lets see he robbed a gas station so must not have money so probally wont ever be able to pay fines and court cost so just lock them up.
