I kind of agree with the community service. I just got done doing twenty hours today. It really sucks. I was told to go to the local cemetary and do it there. I weed whacked for twenty hours. The whole reason I was there is because I had to go home one night after partying. I didn't want to drive so I was walking and the cop just came up and asked me if I was drinking. It was bullshit. But I guess I shouldn't have been drinking. What I learned.... Don't get caught....and if you do running gets you the same sentance as just standing there.
But back to the point. I think if he does end up getting community service I'd bet he won't do it again.....I'm two cents poorer now.
