    He is also still open to a civil suit by the family of the man he shot.

    This is very confusing...no fine, no time, then why the confiction? Who was the jury trying to please?

    You dont have to face any consequences for what you have done cause youre not guilty, but youre still guilty. Leave it up to a jury of our peers to make sense of everything. I'm glad he didnt get any time though.
    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    I also do not understand. If they don't think he deserves Time or a Fine that means he's NOT GUILTY.

    And now he can't own a firearm to protect himself. And I'm sure the BGs buddies want him dead.

    Stupid.

    Yeah, something isn't making sense here. Maybe someone from VA could chime in with some more info?

    The jury may have done this just so the knuckledraggers family would have a better case in civil court against him,(Driver)

    It sucks ,And I feel for him

    Anybody know if he was shooting to protect life or property? The article is pretty worthless. If it was property he got lucky. If it was life he got shafted.

    He was charges with second degree murder and use of a firearm in a felony. Basically the jury did not feel that the DA proved second degree murder and convicted on a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter.

    It could have gone much worse for him. The dead man had broken into Drivers girlfriends car. Driver confronted and ended up shooting him. Protection of property in VA is not justification for lethal force. Also there was no weapon found on the dead man.

    archer, that makes more sense. Phone call to the cops would have been cheaper.

    One less bad guy, suits me. And the executioner doesn't pay a fine or time. Even better. Perhaps this will be a lesson to the up and coming scum who feel they are welcome to take whatever is yours.

    A few things here. First off, he fired after chasing the guy breaking into an empty car (His girlfriends, but it was not a situation where he could feel he was fighting for his life). He confronted him, shot him twice, the BG ran and he chased him to shoot 4 more shots according to a witness. Then ditched his gun somewhere.

    Not a good shoot. Not justifiable in any means.

    The fact he isn't serving time is interesting. There were a few cases here of people doing things in defense of property that almost always ended in jail time. Probably the fact they didn't find the gun blew a big hole in the prosecutors case.
