Plea bargain in drug case should not nullify the crime

Mar 7, 2012 - Dan Brossman, Lander


Re: Feb. 26 Ranger front page "Plea deal for lead defendant in drug sweep":

Does a plea bargain nullify a crime?

From 80 years in prison down to probation? Seems like if you own a business in Riverton, and if you are from a minority group, you can commit any crime and get away with it. Just plea bargain your way out of it, right?

This judgment seems like an open door for more criminal activity in Fremont County.
