    Thanks for posting this Richrd, what a very sad story, compounded by the intended prosecution of this poor soul, isn't he suffering enough? I'd think this is "an extremely rare case" imo because few prosecutors would lodge charges in such circumstances. What a travesty.

    From Richrd's link above:

    "Where is the malice?

    That is the question Bucks County Judge Albert Cepparulo wanted answered Friday during a hearing involving a 30-year-old Bensalem man charged with killing his mother in what was believed to have been a suicide pact."

    http://www.buckscountycouriertimes.c...bea49427f.html

    I could say where I think the malice currently lies but that's just my opinion.

    How can a person be charged with 'aiding suicide' and 'criminal homicide'? I can't believe they're going ahead with a trial, I hope the jury answers loud and clear what they think of these charges after they've heard everything. This man deserves compassion, not punishment, imo.

    Thanks Richrd, very glad to see those two charges dropped (for a 'complete lack of malice' [thank you Judge Cepparulo!]), sorry to see such a high bail being set but at least the judge is displaying some common sense in this sad tale.

    Historically, In the Event of a: No Contest Plea / Negotiated Plea / Plea Bargain / Guilty Finding,

    a Defendant’s Confinement Time Awaiting Trial & Sentencing is Subtracted from Any Incarceration

    Sentence. Of Course, The Sentencing Judges Know This Formula, And They Have A Wide Latitude In

    Assigning: Pre-Trial Confinement Time-Served / Probation / Parole /

    Concurrent Terms / Consecutive Terms.
