Barstool and Pat, Your Thoughts?

As our two resident barristers, I'd like your opinions on this.

Jim Leyritz: How does he get off of the manslaughter charge? He drives drunk on a suspended NY license (which would render his FL license suspended), gets into an accident and kills a mother of two. Furthermore, his bail was later revoked for drinking alcohol, a violation of his bail conditions.

His Conviction: misdemeanor DUI.
His Penalty: $500 fine and 1 year probation. If he violates probation, its six months in jail.

Where is justice? How is this possible?

Here's my guess, too many New Yorkers in Florida. They couldn't let their two time World Series champ rot in prison where he belongs.

Don't know. Hated law school because none of it made sense, including stuff like this. Probably not the right person to ask

Jury couldn't conclude that he had run a red light.
