It pays to be connected

Even though Haskell's former mayor Charley Smith was convicted of first degree manslaughter and the law says he must serve 85% of his sentence, Judge Jeff Payton decided six months was long enough.
How convenient for the former Mayor. If I killed someone with my vehicle while intoxicated I doubt I would have been let out so quickly - medical conditions or age be damned.

Does anyone here doubt that this was a favor thrown out to an old friend?
