i think the sentence is rather harsh.....
and i am amazed at the international media attention.
i wonder, only in alaska would it carry such a long prison term....more, actually than many get for 1st degree murder who actually pull the trigger.

and i can't sleep......

Excessive and I thought that, the judge, in mentioning that Mechelle would not be with her daughter until old age was cruel and unwarrented.

Maia: If ever your mother needed your strength and love its now and she is indeed fortunate to have such as you for a daughter. Be strong for her and take strength from your friends.

I just saw the news today. -hugs- I am so sorry. That is ridiculous. The media is just trying to turn this into some sensational murder story, like something from a novel or a movie or something, when so many terrible people murder people senselessly and with no remorse or change in attitude, or plan for change. And the evidence, from what I've seen, seems to be just lacking a bit.

If you need anything or just need to get out and hang out, please let me know. You have my e-mail address and can get my number from Chris. I don't have any work on Sunday. Love you.

thanks :)
i'm fairly certain it was the media that convicted her. but, on the other hand, carlin got the same without all the media. so...i just don't know.....
at least there is an appeal process.

As I recall for a good portion of the Carlin trial the focus was more often your sister and thus she received very early and unwarranted media attention. One cannot help wonder what the outcome would have been for Mechelle had she been tried first. As you say there is the appeal process.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
