Uckele Not Guilty

The Pocono Record has the fascinating developments in the Father's Day shooting in Pennsylvania.

One by one, the charges were read, followed by the jury foreperson's response.

Murder in the first degree: Not guilty.

Murder in the third degree: Not guilty.

Voluntary manslaughter: Not guilty.

The crowd of family and friends let out a loud gasp.

Uckele was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, a misdemeanor of the first degree that can carry jail time. He was also found guilty of fleeing from a law officer, and endangering the safety of a law officer.

I suppose that means he would not lose his right to own guns. Does that sound right to you? Shouldn't a misdemeanor of this type be a disqualifier?

What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
