Perhaps the bigger issue is the number of people on death row who end up being exonerated.

So Hunte got 29 years. I know people want his head and rightly so, but I think that's a pretty stiff sentence. Remember, Hunte has cooperated with police, will cooperate with the prosecutors, he did not enter the house, supposedly didn't know his friend was carrying a gun, and thought he was burglarizing an empty home. 29 years is a long time to spend in prison for sitting in a car during a botched burglary of what he thought was an empty house. I wouldn't say it's too stiff, but it's not exactly a light sentence either.

If this guy was the least involved and not even in the house at the time of the shooting and still ended up with 29 years, I'm confident the other d-bags will get life or close to life sentences. I'm no attorney, but I sure hope that's how it plays out.

S.T was only 24 when he died. He should have lived until he was at least 75. So they took at least 51 yr's away from an innocent man for no reason. I think the sentencing should start somewhere around 50 yr's to life.

Regardless of the nature of their involvement? 29 years is a long time to serve in prison for sitting in a car while friends tried to rob what they thought was an empty house.

And although I am not familiar with Florida law, I highly doubt this guy will serve less than 15-20 years of his sentence. Contrary to "conventional wisdom," convicts typically serve more than 5% of the prison sentences.

See, I don't think this is right. The guy didn't enter the home and he didn't shoot anyone. 29 years??? I'd be ok with him getting 5 years.
