If it were personal to me I would want him to have life too; but it's not and Thank God for that, just being rational without feelings involved for the crime that was committed. No alcohol involved, No drugs, speeding yes, it's a tough pill to swallow, I've heard murder charges from actually shooting someone getting 10-15 years. It was an accident, he was speeding, driving reckless, 5-10 at most. He wasn't trying to kill anyone, it was an unfortunate accident.

Manslaughter: the crime of killing a human being without malice aforethought, or otherwise in circumstances not amounting to murder

You performed an action that resulted in death. Even if what you were doing wasn't illegal, it's still manslaughter. Driving a two ton hunk of metal at close to two times the speed limit resulting in a death. You should reasonably know that was a possibility. Stupid is never a defense.

"Many states recognize different degrees of vehicular manslaughter. Statutes typically authorize more severe punishment for vehicular manslaughter convictions involving drunk or drugged drivers, as opposed to convictions based on non-DUI traffic offenses. For example, a driver who causes a death while intoxicated can be charged with first-degree vehicular homicide, a felony carrying up to fifteen years in prison. But a driver who causes a death while committing a moving traffic offense (such as failure to maintain lane position), is guilty of second-degree vehicular homicide, a misdemeanor carrying a maximum of a year in jail."

He should still do time, but 22 years? no alcohol or drugs involved, his lawyer advised him wrong. What if this was someones wife a mother or son / daughter, never committed a crime in their life, doesn't drink, doesn't do drugs, never even had a moving violation, goes out one night after work with some coworkers, (no alcohol involved) on the way home accidentally doses off at the wheel gas pedal floored and kills 3 people by accident, you would feel that is justice for that person to do 22 years in prison? Good luck because that could be anyone. Again.... No alcohol, No drugs, if drugs or alcohol was involved then that would be irresponsible and deserve more time.

This guy was not asleep, he knowing did what he did. What was the sentence for the 3 people killed? Life, or rather death. Some idiot knowingly speeds down a freeway at unconscionable speeds, and his actions resulted in a death. I have no issue with 22 years, nor would I with longer...no matter if a lighter sentence was possible. He was initially charged with murder, but those counts were dismissed under a plea agreement in which the vehicular manslaughter charges were added. He pleaded guilty to three counts of vehicular manslaughter, four counts of engaging in a speed vehicle contest and 11 counts of assault likely to cause great bodily injury in connection with the pileup. Why would anyone advocate that the sentence was too strict?

Besides, it was an agreed upon sentence in a plea deal to prevent murder charges.
Quote:
“Dealio Lockhart entered a guilty plea this afternoon in case BA444552 before Judge Jose Sandoval in Department 50,” Deputy District Attorney Michael Blake said.

“Lockhart admitted all crimes charged in an eighteen-count amended complaint for a negotiated term of 22 years, 4 months,” he said.
