Yikes.

That sentence has been commuted.

So if he didn't get much of a deal, why the fuck do it?

It makes no sense to me.

No positives for anyone EXCEPT for Britt.

That's a bad political and moral decision.

Try to hide it with a Friday release and comingle it with others.

That's so political.

Money makes the problems of a rich, entitled brat go away.

Yeah, a little context in the article would have been nice... makes it seem like it's totally random or shenanigans in the background, when it could have been a routine review/parole/whatever. Not that it matters a ton, but details are nice.

How dare you ask for context! We should all just rush to judgement!

It's definitely not routine. As someone who has worked in the legal field for a long time, I honestly don't know what real benefit is to him other than immediately getting out of prison a month or two early. It's a bad deal for him post release.

Itís strange the timing of this in relation to the Chiefs trying to get public support for the April 2nd ballot initiative.

Not sure if it hurts public support, but it doesnít help it.

Huh? He goes home nearly two years early. That's a pretty massive benefit even under house arrest.

More than like that's what it is or very close to it. Nobody does the full amount of time they get sentenced for unless it's a life sentence and even a life sentence doesn't mean life most of the time. The only reason this is news is it's because of who he is.

Do you think people do their entire sentence in prison? Most are released after serving less than half.

Commutation of a sentence. It happens, but it isn't a routine part of the process.
