The second of the two felons who were out on parole and who burgled my boat and attempted to murder me has pled guilty. There will therefore be no trial, only a sentencing hearing for the two of them at which I may speak if the prosecutor and I decide I should. The judge here is an American judge under contract.
Both felons pled to the charge which is a class A felony, carrying a minimum of ten years. More importantly, the burglary and attempted murder charge both specifically pled to carries a sentence of from 20 to life. The prosecutor's office expects a sentence of from 15 to 30 years for each. We will see. Sentencing should occur in about two months.
Hopefully I can get some of my things out of evidence then. It has been an adventure.
