Three Years for Hammering, Stabbing, Shooting
Care to guess the sex of the assalant?
Cherrie Elaine Tingen has hammered, stabbed and shot her now estranged boyfriend and she claimed domestic abuse. The defence states that she has battered woman syndrome, is bi-polar, suffers from depression, is a crack addict, and was intoxicated at the scene. Well then that is OK facing two twenty year terms to reduce it to 3 years having to serve 2 years with 5 months served (so now it is 1 year 7 months) before she is elegible for parole. Boyfriend Rickey Cassel was shot once in the head and 4 times on the back. The slug was removed from his head and he still carries 3 slugs with him. He will also need shoulder surgery.
Judge Scott McDowell said that these crimes demand more than probation. Really? I think he is bing a bit harsh!
