Jack Schaap Gets 12 Years in Federal Prison

Jack Schaap Gets 12 Years in Federal Prison March 20, 2013

Guessing that all those identical letters from IFB Schaap followers didn’t help him much after the FBI called them  “ Sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity” in the sentencing memorandum.

Apparently the federal sentencing guidelines for this crime are recommended to be 14 years so the judge added on 2 years to the plea agreement sentencing recommendation because he was uncomfortable giving 4 years below that guideline. No word on how many years he will actually be required to serve before coming up on patrol or which federal facility he will be incarcerated at.

I hope the IFB members issuing death threats and just generally harassing the victim and her family will stop now. Enough damage has been done and there are no winners here.

Will add links as various media outlets report in.
