"So whether this is infinite wisdom or not, I am going to take a chance on you," Kelly said. "You have too much to offer in society to let you rot away in prison."

But first Kelly wanted to make sure that Richardson knew what was at stake, that he knew that this was indeed his last chance.

The judge gave Richardson a year in jail. He suspended a 13-year prison sentence, placing Richardson on probation pending successful completion of the Cornerstone drug rehab program.

That is unbelievable, 21 arrests for drugs and he has much to offer society? I don't understand not holding people accountable for their actions <sigh>.
