I would love to get some attention to this lax sentence. It just terrifies me that this person who violently stabbed someone is only sentenced to 4 years.
From Washington Post:
The Washington man who stabbed another man in the neck has been sentenced to four years in prison, the U.S. Attorney General’s Office announced.
According to the government’s evidence, the attack was prompted by an incident on Sept. 9, 2009, when a juvenile tried to grab the man who would later be stabbed.
The man was unharmed but reported the incident to police.
Three days later, about 10:15 p.m. the juvenile and three men, including 21-year-old Melvin Andrade, rode their bicycles to the busy intersection of 14th Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW.
You can read the rest of the incident here.
