Montgomery County sentence: White male, money; Probation, fines, if jail time- immediate work release, probably 18- 59 months ( County "life"), Megan's law for 5 years. I will bet money to anyone who reads this, his sentence will include any/or all of the subject lines aforementioned. He will not go to State Prison where he needs to be, because he only rapes people, not selli them drugs that they want.
