Judge sentences teen to 10 years of church

7 days ago

Mike Norman is an Oklahoma district court judge known for sentencing offenders to attend church as part of probation agreements. Still, the sentence he handed down this week was notable both for its length and the age of the offender. On Tuesday, Norman sentenced 17-year-old Tyler Alred to a 10-year deferred sentence after he plead guilty to manslaughter. Among the stipulations of the sentence — that Alred attend church for 10 years. Norman said he’d never given the church sentence to an offender as young as Alred, who had been drinking before crashing his pickup truck and killing his passenger.

Do you think being sentenced to church will let you become closer or become close to God than being in jail? Let me know what you think.

Know what you do and do what you know.
