Far too many innocent people sitting behind bars, completely stripped of their freedom...

Well, I don't know a ton of details about this case, or the laws involved, 20 years and a million bucks is the maximum sentence but it's not necessarily what the sentence will be and that may not be what McMorrow serves.

These types of stories always report the maximum sentence. What percentage of convicted criminals actually receive and serve the maximum? It can't be that high.
