  • Christopher Soriano, Luis Ricardo Hernandez, san jose homicides 2012, san jose murders 2012

    why did luis ricardo hernandez receive a 4year sentence for manslaughter if it wouldve been me or any other 1st time offender we would have probably got at least 10,under the same circumstances weapon and all. why did this case settle so fast ? why was there not a further investigation? why was the other man released? a tennant at apartment complex mentioned that these maintenance men were trafficking drugs out of there now that t hey are gone the traffic has stopped? this was more than what they said this was premeditated why would you take a gun to work?
