Judge Gregory Koturbash said despite Teneycke’s ailing mother, dying in a matter of weeks or months he would not grant an intermittent sentence. You’d think the judge meant to say in spite because it sounds like malice, contempt and disdain to me. She is made to bear punishment too-to her last breath now.

He will be out in four short months anyway. Let the guy be with his mom this month, intermittent local cell incarceration.  I’m sure he would gladly double his time to be served to let his mom hold his hand.  I’ve never seen a valley grind its heel on someone so badly.
