  1. “Involuntary manslaughter is a felony that carries a maximum penalty of ten years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.”
    And I am SURE, were this outrage to have occurred in BONNEVILLE County, OUR ‘prosecutor’ would have ALREADY bargained it down to something in a traffic citation area. Let’s HOPE Bannock County has a prosecutor with a bigger PAIR, although that’s not really setting the bar too high, is it?
