Judge Schatz Spanks Repeat Felon
Last month, repeat felon Billy Russell found himself in the courtroom of Judge Greg Schatz after being convicted of… (deep breath)
-Felon in Possession of a Firearm
-Felony Theft and..
-Possession of a Stolen Firearm.
(Whew…Billy was busy!)
Judge Schatz sentenced Billy to 9 to 20 years in prison.
Nice job your honor.
Unfortunately, Nebraska sentencing laws mandate that Billy MUST be released in less than 10 years.
At the tender age of 22, this will be Billy’s 3rd time in prison.
(You read that right loyal readers…3rd time in prison!)
Let’s take a quick look back shall we?
2009 – Sentenced to 2 to 4 years for Attempted 1st Degree Felony Assault.
Enjoyed early release less than 2 years later with no supervision.
2011 – Sentenced to 18 months for Felony False Imprisonment. (an abduction?)
Enjoyed early release 3 months later with no supervised release.
Arrested in March of 2013 for the current conviction.
Yet another “isolated example”….
Yet another stellar example of the failure that is automatic “good time” laws and the state of Nebraska’s current rehabilitation efforts…
…or lack thereof.
By the way…
Watch Billy grow up! (in prison…)
