    • I feel like 9 years is a long time for someone who was Trying to hire someone to kill his wife. Vince Neil drove drunk, got one of his passengers killed and put two others in the Hospital and only did 15 days in jail in 5 years probation. Seems kinda off to me.

    • “official sentencing to take place on May 02nd with Judge Carlos Armour presiding” – that has to be the most metal judge name I’ve ever seen. If his gavel doesn’t have spikes, I’ll be quite disappointed.
