‘What am I missing?’
Is it just me, or do some of the sentences being handed out at the Bureau County Courthouse seem a little much? I’ve started clipping articles from the Bureau County Republican that seem to reflect particularly harsh sentences for what appear to be relatively minor offenses. I’m being cautious in my wording, since all I know about these cases is what is printed in short articles. However, a 3.5 and 2.5 years in prison for (respectively) stealing two and one bottles of Mike’s Hard Lemonade in two separate cases, and eight years for stealing $100 in cash in another?
