3-28-14 dodge county negligient homicide sentence-reaction

A Dodge County Sheriff’s captain admits he was surprised at the sentence handed down in a vehicular homicide case.   At a sentencing hearing this week in Dodge County Circuit court a Reeseville man got only seven months in jail for a fatal crash nearly four years ago.  Investigators say the driver was under the influence of marijuana at the time of the crash.  Dodge County sheriff’s captain Trace Frost says he understands how difficult  it must be for judges when it comes to sentencing in cases like this but also understands why the family of the victim is upset at what they perceive as a light sentence.  "Yes I can understand their stance,"  Frost told AM 1170 WFDL's Between the Lines program.  "If it were a family member of mine I would have the same feeling I believe."
