Judge Denise Lindberg listened to nearly two hours of emotional testimony before handing down the only sentence she could under Utah law. She said only the parole board could determine how long Hacking will ultimately stay in prison, but that she will recommend that he be held "a very long time."

It will do little to ease the grief of the family but he belongs in jail.

He also has to pay a $10,000 fine, over $120,000 to the state (or county, or whoever funded the search for her body) and cannot ever make a dime off of his story.

And yet, if you were growing and selling pounds of medical marijuana in california, you could conceivably get sentenced to a MUCH longer sentence than 6 years.

(I realize that he'll "likely" be in jail longer than 6 years, but still!!)

to me, this is not enough for the crime he committed against his own wife.

not to start a death penalty debate or anything.

Hopefully, he'll spend the rest of his days in jail

Yep. Kinda makes you realize the priorities of the criminal justice system in this country, doesn't it?

6 years as a minimum is really a slap in the face to the family, the way I intrepret it.

6 years to LIFE I believe in the sentence... not 6 yrs.
No way will this guy serve only six yrs - it's a broad spectrum in which to give the judicial system leeway.

While I'm sure that he's not likely to get paroled, I was totally shocked that he only got 6 years.

One of the local news channels interviewed Lori Hacking's father right after the verdict was announced, and he said that even if Hacking rots in jail for the rest of his life, it still won't bring his daughter back. That made me


Hacking's family also released some statement, I forget exactly what it said, but the gist of it was that they all supported him and that they hoped that he would get out of jail and rejoin the family once he had paid for his crime. WTF? You can't ever repay or make better on what he did. I realize that he's their family and all, but wasn't his wife and her unborn baby just as much a part of their family? It was really sickening.
