Hospital staff too supportive

The sentencing of Trace Adams for crimes against his former girlfriend has failed to meet standards necessary to insure others will think twice prior to hounding a former partner and ruining their life.

Twenty-two months to serve for the 10 felony crimes Adams agreed he committed against the lady results in only two months for each felony. This unfortunately continues to keep those criminals sentenced in Island County receiving almost the least amount of time for similar crimes of any county in Washington State! This makes Island County a great place to commit a crime, should you get apprehended.

WhatÂ’s up with his fellow Whidbey General Hospital employees? One would hope that those tasked with providing medical service to the community would have a better grasp of crimes such as these. Speaking in support of this felon tends to indicate his fellow employees believe his actions against this woman are acceptable.
