Clyde Lont shot David Rivera 7 times, and killed him.
Clyde Lont's pre-meditated lookout helper Matthew Hendricks was convicted at trial of only third degree murder (notice how The Morning Call's helpful headline up-plays it as just "murder.")
"Amazingly" (in the word of sentencing Judge James T. Anthony), 7-time shooter/murderer Clyde Lont was somehow able to make one heck of a "bargain" (again, Judge Anthony's word) sweetheart plea deal w/ DA Jim Martin:
Triggerman Clyde Lont only got third degree murder, too.

GROSS INJUSTICE MYSTERY SOLVED?
Readers, the criminal defense attorney who arranged Clyde Lont's "amazing" "bargain" plea deal w/ DA Jim Martin is Gavin P. Holihan.
Gavin P. Holihan sits on the Host Committee of the Committee to Reelect Jim Martin District Attorney.
I have the 'smoking gun' hard copy to prove it, if anyone from the local media would like to examine it.
