Gary Blanchard: Only animals act like that, and that's what happens if you keep pushing your luck. Thirty years is a long time, but guess what: Society doesn't want you on the street with their daughters.

Kathryn Seal Lirette: Sentencing in habitual offender cases is determined by what type of prior convictions and how many priors. There is a formula that the court uses. It’s not a 30-year sentence for obscenity. It is a 30-year sentence for being a habitual offender. He’s 26 years old and has five prior convictions.

Linda Trahan: Glad you explained it, Kathryn, as John Q. Public doesn't know the intricacies of it all.

Eric Jp Gibson: There is video evidence, but the lawyer said there is no proof he did it. Sad! Six-time felon. It's also sad you have to commit six felonies to get anything truly done to stop you.

Peggy Bergeron: Wonder how one person gets 30 years for the same charge with no good evidence and another gets three life sentences. Something is definitely wrong with this system.

Claudia Marivel: When they find out in jail what got him 30 years, they will want a show. You want to live like a criminal, you should live the criminal life in a criminal prison.

Sarah Jones: If they were this hard on DWIs ...

Haley Henry: They could be, but people usually plead to a DWI, and when they do, most of the time the DA's office doesn't "multiplye bill" them.

Kelsey Lyn Falgout: People wouldn’t think it’s an “excessive” increase if they were the ones it was happening to.

Wendy Lovell: This is why your children are in private school and partly why we moved to Texas.

Lisa Cheramie: He should have gotten 30 years for all of the other offenses to begin with.

Drako Carlos: So they finally crack down on him.

Donna Babin: Don't worry, buddy. You'll have the NFL taking a knee for you.

Tasha Mackk: And you're right.

Marcia Modrynski: Yep, because he is such a fine upstanding citizen.

Jacob Leblanc: While I support habitual offender increases, going from four to 30 years seems a bit excessive.

Kathy Verrett: He was wrong, wrong on so many levels, but from four to 30 years is going a bit overboard.

Holly Pellegrin: Maybe he should stop being like that.

Brian Taylor: See ya later.

Jackie Higgins: Haha! Funny now?

Mike Williams: What do white people have to say about a white man raping little kids and doing all the shooting.

Derrick Beasley: Sure, there are rapists and murderers of every race. What's your point?

Cody Rhodes: Well "they" don't do all the shootings and raping. so there's that. But for the ones that do, I say bring them around back and dispose of them quickly. Sincerely, a white dude

Derrick Beasley: So you attribute this to him being white? Who is the one white man's case that you're basing your opinion of the whole white race on? Was he a repeat offender?

Derrick Beasley: I didn't say that at all. I don't know who you're talking about, but if he did it then he deserves to die. What's weird is that you say it's because he's white that he got this sentence. Could he have been rich and/or that he has connections, or that's what the DA and victim's family decided on? There's more to it than "you are a racist or you are a child rapist."
