Taiwanese Student Accused of Threatening School Gets No More Jail Time

An 18-year-old Taiwanese exchange student who threatened to shoot up a high school near Philadelphia back in March is home free and will serve no additional time.

The student who claims that he was just joking will be deported to his home in Taiwan.

I bet Police weren’t laughing when they found 1,600 rounds of ammunition, as well as weapons, in the home of the student’s host family.

Some joke.

Prosecutors requested that the young man be sentenced to two or more years in prison for his guilty plea to a firearms-related charge.

A federal judge, however, declined the request of prosecutors and ordered the young man to be deported.

The judge cited his youth and a strong family support system as reasons why he should not face jail time.

The student has famous parents in Taiwan are an actor and assistant film director.

As would be typical for an American teen accused of threatening to “shoot up” a school, the exchange student was facing up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for his guilty plea to the firearms charge.

Unlike most in America, however, the student will be allowed to return home to his country of origin and pick up his life where it left off.

The moral of this story: If a liberal judge hears your case after you’ve committed a crime while visiting the U.S. as an exchange student, and you are young with famous parents in the film industry then most likely the worst thing that will happen to you is that you’ll be deported.

If on the other hand, you’re an American with a great family support system and you commit the same crime, say good-bye to your parents because you’re most likely going to be away in prison for a long time.
