Walter Kendall plea deal accepted

Sentence of restitution, jail, probation comes from 2010 stabbing case

Posted: Thursday, April 12, 2012 3:01 pm

Walter Kendall, the Jefferson man who stabbed his friend in the chest on Dec. 30, 2010, during a psychotic episode, was sentenced to 90 days in Park County Jail and ordered to pay more than $40,000 in restitution and court fines.

The sentence was handed down by Fairplay-based District Judge Stephen Groome on April 9. He said near the end of the three-hour hearing on April 9 that he had initially been “stunned” by the plea bargain presented to him at a March 5 hearing, because he considered it to too light of a punishment for a man charged with attempted murder.

    His BP was 170/120? That's enough to get you off for attempted murder?? Nice job, clowns. I know at least 5 people whose BP is regularly higher than that. Would they get off too? I seriously doubt it. Corruption knows no bounds.

    Editor's Note: The Mayo Clinic's website, at a chart that shows ranges of blood pressure, and what a readingindicates. Anything over 160/100 puts a person at Stage 2Hypertension. According to this website,,"Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to trouble with memory orunderstanding. Uncontrolled high blood pressure also may affect yourability to think, remember and learn. Trouble with memory orunderstanding concepts is more common in people who have high bloodpressure."
