A JUDGE GIVES A GIFT

|

HP resident Rocky Anderson received a probated sentence from the jury for killing 10-year-old Braden Hopkins while driving under the influence. He and his parents may have thought that was a blessing. But the real blessing came from Judge Vickers Cunningham, who, using the discretion allowed in such cases, imposed a 180-day jail term–to be served over Christmas and over Braden’s birthday week for the next 10 years. In addition, Rocky must send a letter to Braden’s parents on each of her birthdays. Rocky may not realize it yet, although I bet he has a glimmer, but no person on earth could have done him a bigger favor than the judge just did.
