    I am Dallas' sister. I live in Ohio whereas he lived in Georgia. I was 13 at the time of his death. I only ever got to see my brother a few times. Holly took away my chance of ever getting to know my brother. She chose to drink and she chose to take drugs. She chose to pick up the gun. He was a father, a son and a brother. She deserves to spend a lifetime in prison, not just 10 years. His family will suffer because of her poor choices. Jacob, his son, was only a baby at the time of his death. He will grow up never knowing his father because of her.

    Dallas left behind a 15 month old son at the time of his death. I can say that he would not have shot her because he would not have gotten a gun in the first place. He was a good man. Court records show that she got the gun to scare him and gain control over him. He was leaving her and she didn't like it. She fricking crazy and that will not change. She will probably get parole and when she does her life will go on, hopefully it won't be a pleasant one. The truth is she has a life but Dallas doesn't and that is a fact. Justice was not served, at least not for the wonderful young man she murdered.

    Wow 10 years not bad ! Sorry for the loss of his family, and children if there are any. I really doubt it was an accident. Who is to say he would not have shot her. I wish I would be so lucky. But I don't do drugs or drink so I would probaly get the chair. I hope thats not the reason she got off so easy.

    Don't we have a wonderful justice system? You argue with somebody, drunk and drugged, go get a gun, wrestle around and the gun goes off (duh!), person dies, you get 10 years?! Same thing happens in another county, they get Life or the Chair?!

    I just don't get it...

    right on, babtJC. She admitted killing him, and drugs and alcohol were big factors. Stoned, drunk and stupid, in this case, makes a killer. She got off light woth 10 years. When she gets out, she'll still be young enough to have a life. The man she murdered will still be dead.

    Well this mess isn't going to be straightened out! She killed a man because she was drunk and on drugs. To clarify also, Dallas Williams toxicology shows that he was not above the legal level, this is a fact and it is part of the autopsy report. Just because Holly said so (which we all know that she lied profusely) doesn't make it a fact. Need we not forget the other person who knows what happened is dead! So some people don't change. Oh yeah! and Holly has changed but let's remember that she has been sitting in jail for a year - no drugs, no alcohol - I guess she has. I believe she will eventually get out and no doubt in my mind she will go right back to what she knows best. It didn't just start she has been a drug abuser and acoholic for a long time (way before Jaron). So Holly sit there and do your time for killing Dallas because there are no tears here for you. God is good and just! She got off light in our opinion.

    I'm here for you Holly. Know that I love you and pray this mess works it way out. The loss is a tragedy but I believe that you never meant to hurt anyone. Stay strong. I love you
