The latest on Jamal Lewis is he will serve at least two months in a half-way house and 500 hours community service as part of a guilty plead bargain for attempting to set up a drug deal for the purchase of cocaine with a cell phone. He took the the plead bargain for a crime commented in his Junior year at The University of Tennessee. In addition the NFL has served him with a 2 game suspension and a 2 game fine. The NFL's punishment will be on Oct. 24th and 31st. His sentencing will on Jan 26 2004 after the regular season. I'm glad to see that the Federal Prosecutors will not throw the book at the brothers for his cooperation but in the same respect wouldn't it be nice if "ordinary people" or "common folk" could committ a crime and finish whatever they're doing at the time? For example let's say a college student comments a crime such as trying to be a "wannabe" drug dealer or helping a drug dealer like Mr. Lewis did and gets caught in a sting operation during the middle of the school year. Should not he/she be able to finish that year out, serve their time during the summer and return to school in the fall? It would sort of be like doing a summer prison internship. Now honestly how often would that happen? Especially to someone poor and "black". I don't know anyone this has happened to. So if anyone has had such a lucky break and is not a millionaire or a potential millionaire, please share your experience.
