51 years

The drunk driver who killed Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart got 51 years in prison. He won't be eligible for parole until he's served 49 years. He's a kid, the same age as Adenhart. Now he's going to grow old in jail.

I can't help comparing this to the Leyritz case. They aren't identical, and they occurred in different states, but still... Both involved a drunk driver going through a red light, with fatal results. In both cases, the other driver was intoxicated as well. But one driver gets 50 years of jail time, while the other gets one year probation and a $500 fine.

I guess we really do have the best legal system money can buy.
