Sentencing formula is ridiculous
To the editor:
Greg Sparkman's sentencing was like going to a funeral. The only difference was there were no flowers, music or obituary. Our family sat in the front row and cried with every word from the judge. Maybe we should ask that in lieu of flowers, all families who have been put through or are going through this same ordeal please write the elected officials who can give the court the power to override the ridiculous formula the judge has to go by when handing down a sentence.
We'd also like to thank everyone who came to support Greg and the family. This isn't over by a long shot. We will continue to work toward Greg's release and to clear his name of any wrong-doing. We love you, Greg, and may God keep you safe.
DEBBY LYNN GROSS, Gordonville
