Doug Grant gets a term of 5 years imprisonmentMay 30th, 2009 - 7:13 pm ICT by GD
Doug Grant has been proclaimed guilty for the drowning of his wife almost eight years ago. On the 15th of May 2009 Doug stood in front of the country judge to know his fate. The followers of Phoenix Suns will know that Doug Grant was their nutritionist at one point of time. Doug was convicted of manslaughter in the drowning of his second wife, Faylene Grant. Dough was sentenced with five years in prison. To become eligible for a parole, Doug will have to serve a little over four years.
According to sources, Superior Court Judge, Meg Mahoney, could have imposed a more severe term of imprisonment on Doug. It is also being said that Doug could face up to twelve and a half years in prison if Judge Mahoney had agreed to the prosecutor’s demand for ’super-aggravated sentence.’ The term of five years of imprisonment that Doug has been granted is the average or presumptive sentence granted to a person held guilty of manslaughter. However, many observers who followed the case closely, revealed their dissatisfaction with the ruling. The courtroom observers feel that Doug should have received a longer term.
With the ruling came the end of one of the most high-profile criminal trials in the recent history of Maricopa County. The murder had taken place at their Gilbert residence when their three children were in another part of the house. Doug drowned Faylene in the bathroom that was adjacent to their master bedroom and soon after murdering her he remarried (within two months). According to reports, it was Doug Grant’s amorous scores that ruined his marriage.
