COMPARE AND CONTRAST: Michael Biskey, south Mpls resident, could get 10 years for having a bunch of pot in his garage
This week, Harper, 24, pleaded guilty to first-degree assault. According to a Hennepin County press release, Harper "is expected to receive 86 months [or just over seven years] in prison when he is sentenced April 15."
Seems like a remarkably light sentenced for a guy who shot someone in the back for no good reason, fled from the scene, and didn't turn himself in for more than two months afterward, doesn't it?
