Family questions court's decision

-A A +A
By The Staff

My family and I would like to apologize to the victim of the burglary my brother, Randolph Frazier, was accused, tried and convicted of on Sept. 16. Randolph received a life sentence on Sept. 17.

Again, I apologize to this woman for what my brother did.

To Mike Lifesey, the assistant sixth circuit solicitor, my family and I want to know why Randolph is labeled as a thief when there are so many others who have been charged with burglary and have not been labeled as such and have not received a life sentence. Other criminals have been charged with the same offense as my brother have and some criminals have done worse than my brother. But they have not been labeled as a career criminal and a thief. Can you explain this to me?

Earlier this year Randolph was acquitted in one case and a jury could not reach a verdict in another case. So why didn't these cases reflect in the court's decision when he was sentenced to life in prison. He was incarcerated the whole time these cases were being presented.

My family and I don't understand why Randolph received a life sentence for this charge.
