He reportedly admitted to the murder several times since he did it in 1977. Now, he’s going to prison for it.

56-year-old Raymond Richmond was sentenced Friday morning to 12 to 18 years in prison. WSBT reports he’s already served about a year-and-a-half in prison already.

Richmond pleaded guilty in July to killing his cousin, Robert Stasiak, in November 1977 in Ontwa Township. Stasiak’s death was initially ruled a suicide, but the case was later re-opened.

Richmond reportedly admitted to relatives in 1993 that he murdered Stasiak because he flushed marijuana down a toilet. He also reportedly made verbal and handwritten statements about murdering Stasiak while at Oaklawn Hospital, according to court documents.

But I have heard many times that Mary Jane is a safe drug…it’s a victimless crime…right? RIGHT?

Until these users are held accountable, really accountable, for the damage they do when stoned then they don’t get the freedom to do what they want. Change the laws to make their impact on the lives of others the impact they will get. Until then, no sale.
