No jail time for Brad Robinson

Former Rep. Brad Robinson, D-Bonne Terre, was placed on probation for five years Thursday following his felony conviction for leaving the scene of an accident.

Robinson, 42, was driving his pickup on Jan. 1, 2008, when he struck a man, severely injuring him. Surveillance video showed Robinson and his wife changing places to make it appear that Robinson's wife was driving, and then leaving the scene.

Why did they even go to the time and expense of having a trial?

Unbelievable!!!! A person can strike another person with their vehicle and then change drivers before law enforcement arrives and then just get probation! That right there is what's wrong with our legal system! It's ok to break the rules cause nobody cares and you'll just get a slap on the wrist anyway! NICE!!!!
