The family of Sarah Ludemann isn't thrilled with the sentence, as they hoped for life in prison. Furthermore, the family of Wade was hoping for a lighter sentence than was dished out.
Wade's attorney asked for a 15 year sentence followed by 15 years probation, claiming that she was a "youthful offender." She was tried as an adult, and convicted of second degree murder.
She is eligible for parole after serving 85% of her sentence. She will spend many of the most joyous years of her life behind bars, but then again Sarah Ludemann was taken from this world way before her time.
