Local man sentenced in stabbing case

Friday, December 28, 2012

A local man convicted in the stabbing of five individuals at a Mountain Home bar earlier this year was sentenced to 15 years in prison during a hearing in district court Dec. 17.

Juan S. Tabares will spend nearly three years in confinement before he qualifies for parole after he pled guilty to the incident at Charlie's Place in February.

    Really the best deterrent is not a punishment.

    The best deterrent is a recognition and understanding that everyone has to be treated with respect. If a person is looking for respect from another, it won't be had by beating or stabbing or shooting it out of another.

    Punishment is a tax burden. Mutual respect doesn't cost as much.

    The amount of time this guy got doesn't seem to take into consideration that the victims were attacked with a deadly weapon.

  • Respect of what? There was no respect of life or rule of law here. He should have gotten 90 years.
