Should This 90 Year – Old Do Prison Time?

Should his age and health problems keep him out of prison?

Leo Sharp celebrated his 90th birthday this week, but that doesn’t change the fact that he pleaded guilty to drug related charges last fall.

Sharp, a decorated World War II veteran from northern Indiana, was caught in 2011 with almost 200 pounds of cocaine as he traveled on I-94, west of Detroit. Christopher Graveline, Assistant U.S. Attorney, says that the elderly man worked for a Mexican cartel and transported drugs that “literally flooded” northern Indiana and southeastern Detroit for ten years. Prosecutors are recommending a five year jail sentence.

Leo Sharp claims that his advanced age and health problems, including dementia, should be valid reasons as to why he shouldn’t do jail time.

Graveline says the government can address those issues in prison.

Sharp committed the crime, but should this 90 year-old do prison time?
