I just wish these kids should have gotten more jail time since it sound like they are not eve remorseful.

It's incredible that the kids are whining like they are the injured parties. The Judge didn't give them near enough time. The Rev. should sue the parents for damages caused by the children - many states have such a law, Texas does - for this intentional tort.

Many of us locally are very upset at the judge's sentences. We are going to do our best to see she does not get
back on the bench when her time is up. Also we are going to have our respective cycling clubs write official
letters of disapproval. Sure, the man can sue civily. But that won't have any bearing on the kids. The judge should
have sentenced them to much more considering the cyclist could have died. As it is, he is partially parallized on
the right side. He has to live with their actions for the rest of his life.

This sentencing is the criminal portion of the litigation.

I am inclined to think that there is also a civil litigation going on (not sure 'tho).

In any case these kids will also be penalized monetarily
by either - civil suit from the reverend or his medical/accident insurance - for the expenses.
