However, I told the prosecutor if the kid agreed to pay for medical bills (~40k), take anger management, and rehabilitation courses, I would not push the sentencing.
I believe in second chances, but only if he is willing to take responsibility and gradually progress towards being more responsible and mature. He will likely spend less than 2 years, assuming he takes the plea.
Has this punk shown any remorse for what he did? I'm not so sure that I would be willing to let him plea bargain to a lesser sentence.
