MSN – The man who fatally shot retired New Orleans Saints star Will Smith and wounded his wife after a traffic crash last year was sentenced Thursday to 25 years in prison for manslaughter, far less than the maximum prosecutors had called for.
Cardell Hayes faced up to 60 years if given consecutive maximum terms for manslaughter and attempted manslaughter, as prosecutors had urged. Instead, Judge Camille Buras gave him 15 years for shooting Racquel Smith in the legs, to be served at the same time.
Wow. Very lenient penalty for killing one of the best actors/rappers/fathers of all-time. Didn’t know the phrase “25 to life” meant “25”. Probably got off easy because the prosecution knew he was framed. Aliens do this shit all the time – kill people who try to prove to the public that aliens exist. Smith starred in both the Men in Black and Independence Day franchises.
But if the Fresh Prince’s killer wasn’t framed and actually did this, it’s bullshit. Aaron Hernandez gets sentenced to life in prison for killing his gay lover, yet this man only gets 25 for assassinating Jaden Smith’s father. It’s a disgrace to America.
