    Peter, I read that as three years in the clink with the remaining seven years suspended (with him on probation).

    But, of course, nothing in this article is particularly clear, so who the hell knows...

    QFT.

    I'm not even sure they can impose a sentence like that and/or call it suspended... but I'm foreign.

    Over here, if you're banged up for 10 there's a good chance you'll be out on parole in 3-5 anyway...

    Cheers

    That's a pretty decent summation for over here as well (unless it's federal time or an aggravated charge, in which case the average - back when I knew such things - was 80% of sentence). However, how you think you understood Rich is also a sentencing structure I have seen before, especially in sex-related cases. A ten year sentence with three years served and seven suspended, pending probation, instead of possible parole is not terribly unusual. If it works like I've seen it work before, though, they'll be looking for any possibility of busting that probation, not excluding paperwork snafu.

    Connecticut Post makes it a little clearer:

    The 39-year-old Rivera was sentenced Friday in state Superior Court to 10 years -- suspended after he serves three years in prison -- and followed by 10 years probation, after he pleaded guilty to second-degree possession of child pornography.

    Of course, then they go and make themselves look like idiots with the "creator of the Creeper" comment, and insinuating that anyone who does creepy stories in comics should be suspect themselves...

    ShadowMax: Has anyone actually verified this is the real Steve Wacker?

    Me: Quick Steve, tell us something only Steve Wacker would know.

    Steve Wacker: [The Marvel relaunch] secretly is a reboot.

    Me: If you mean the continuity won't match up with any of the preceding issues, anyone could have predicted that.

    I want to make a Dick Clark/Jimmy Savile joke, but my barest sense of propriety stops me...

    Yeah, that makes sense. I once processed a guy in Texas who was being revoked pn what sounds like the same sentencing deal.

    Rich and sentence structures are ships passing in the night.

    Saville getting out in 3 to 5 seems unlikely

    Barring the inevitable zombie apocalypse, that is...
