Even US states that boast that they're "conservative" or "law and order" don't really care if a father kills a young child. Five freaking years??? And that for a guy who shows no remorse.
The confessed killer dad is JAMES GARCIA.

SALYERSVILLE, Kentucky — An eastern Kentucky judge has rejected a plea deal and sentenced an eastern Kentucky man to five years in prison in the death of his son.
WYMT-TV (http://bit.ly/15SQeFz) reports the sentenced was handed down on Thursday to James Garcia in the death of 4-year-old Cameron Mullins. A coroner's report said the boy died of blunt force trauma.
Garcia was originally charged with manslaughter, but entered a plea to reckless homicide in which prosecutors recommended a 16-month sentence.
The judge decided not to take the recommendation, saying Garcia hasn't shown any remorse. She sentenced Garcia to the maximum under sentencing guidelines for the crime.
