Yes, some states have laws going around school buses while loading or unloading. I would want jail time, but I wouldnt want him to spend the rest of his life in jail.
so i guess thats why my friend was sent up the creek for 20 yrs for having drugs on him. thats plano tx. killing a kid and you just get a slap on the hand but drugs can get you life.
Has nothing to do with Plano...FYI I dont work for Plano.....If this occured in TX this is what he would be charged with
Sec. 19.04. MANSLAUGHTER. (a) A person commits an offense if he recklessly causes the death of an individual.
(b) An offense under this section is a felony of the second degree. His punishment
Sec. 12.33. SECOND DEGREE FELONY PUNISHMENT. (a) An individual adjudged guilty of a felony of the second degree shall be punished by imprisonment in the institutional division for any term of not more than 20 years or less than 2 years.
(b) In addition to imprisonment, an individual adjudged guilty of a felony of the second degree may be punished by a fine not to exceed $10,000.
This is why I said a couple years in Jail and probation. I dont make the laws, I just enforce them. All I can do is file the report and then let the JURY (which is someone like you) decide on what they should get. IF someone gets life because of the drugs, then blame the courts and not the officers. A Judge and Jury decide the amount of time in jail, not us cops.
