Judge sentences teen to go to church

Advertising
OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma teen convicted of manslaughter won't get jail time instead a judge sentenced him to go to church.

 

 

Tyler Allred was 17-years-old when prosecutors say he drove while intoxicated and killed his passenger, a 16-year-old friend.

 

A judge presiding over Allred's case sentenced him to attend church every Sunday for the next 10 years. In addition to church attendance Allred must graduate from high school and take drug and alcohol test for the next year.

The teen's attorney does not plan to challenge the sentence.

He should go to jail.. and church services there.  Both would be good for him.

If the religion means nothing to the person, it shouldn't be any more painful than sitting in a jail cell.  

Quoting circle_of_life:

 Well of course going to church doesn't make someone a christian, but that's kinda the idea isn't it? Why the hell else would you go? No one should be forced to attend any religious services against their will. There are plenty of other "punishments" that would be more suitable without the forcing a certain religion on someone.

Quoting JTROX:

A convicted felon can face consequences that are not what they would choose.

Going to church doesn't make you a christian.

Quoting circle_of_life:

 That's bullshit. You can't force religion on someone. He doesn't have to become a christian on order to get his life back on track!

Wow.. that's after killing a person? You should hear the rants where I live about someone that broke into the zoo and murdered a monkey the other night. I think the kid is more afraid of the people then his conviction. That kid is going to get it pretty hard over a monkey.. we're talking about a person here. Crazy crazy.
