    Dong entered a guilty plea --- recall new haven student w/AR in vehicle

    Since the Bushmaster XM-15E2S was prohibited in Connecticut, he was charged with a violation of interstate commerce under federal law. Dong entered a guilty plea in U.S. District Court in Hartford and now faces a $250,000 fine and up to five years in federal prison.

    Charged by the state over the handguns with two counts of having a firearm on unauthorized premises since the university had prohibited guns even with a permit, Dong entered a guilty plea in a local court in exchange for an expected two-year sentence in October.

    Outrageous on many levels. Also sounds like he needed better legal counsel.

    Easier to plead down, collect the fee, and go on to the next case.

    As a result, the student's lfe is in the crapper and his future has been seriously compromised.

    Nope - definitely not bashing attorneys. Even Dan Hawes describes this unfortunate set of circumstances as existing within the legal community. Neither one of us indicate or suggest that is pervasive.
