  1. And the phantom who shot C John in his yard last year got away clean. Justice really one sided., just for possesion they hit the unfortunate small man hard.

  2. His sentences were run consecutively and not concurrently. Had they been concurrent then he would’ve only had to serve the highest of the sentences …which was the five year sentence.
