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?
