Yeah, it says 7.5 year sentence, expected to serve first 5.
His F'ing attorney at the last second tried to get the judge to shave 9mo off the sentence, even though it was an already agreed upon plea deal.
Defense attorney Fred Bruno sought a last-minute change in the plea agreement and proposed that Blue have nine months trimmed off his sentence, citing his time in treatment and living in a sobriety residence.
The prosecution objected to any change to the plea's terms, and Chu agreed, saying, "There was no evidence that there was any lockdown at any of the facilities that you were at, so there is no legal basis for it. Also, it was not part of the agreement."
While addressing the judge, Bruno also pointed out that from Day One, Blue took responsibility for what he did.
"In my 42 years of practice, I've never seen anything quite like what Mr. Blue has done to put the genie back in the bottle," he said. "The steps he has taken to express his remorse, accept responsibility and make amends have been unparalleled."
Kinda tough to put the genie back in, after you murder two young men with very bright futures.
He should've died in that car crash, they should've lived. Instead, he lives because he didn't wear a seatbelt. Walked away, in fact.
