ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - An 18-year-old has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for throwing a punch in a St. Cloud alley that killed a college student.
Jesse Smithers of Sauk Rapids earlier pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Colton Gleason.

I'd say more than likely.
A COMPLETE ACCIDENT?????? He got out of his car and punched him in the face!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF???? Were there no witnesses to this? Why was this a plea margin? Outrageous!!!!!!
Great article. Let’s see if it answers the basic journalistic standards?
Where?...Almost, not specific
When? ... Nope
IOHAS: If Obama had a son...
He’s one of Barry’s kids... guess.
A friend of mines brother was eating at a wedding reception, minding his own business. Behind him two drunks got into an argument; the music was so loud no one heard them at first. One of these fools threw a wild roundhouse punch that connected with the back of Eric’s head. Eric went face down in his food and never moved again. It was prosecuted as negligent homicide IIRC
Another “youth” through the school-to-prison pipeline.
Sure it was accidental. /s
Meanwhile, Ethan Couch, the “affluenza kid” kills 4 and gets probation.
And this why I tell people is your right and responsibility to defend your life when confrontef by an aggressor, including using Zimmerman tactics if you fear your life and health are in peril.
It’s nice for the “turn the other cheek” crowd to implore one to be the “better or greater man” /s.....idiots and insanity.
There are three outcomes from a fight:
At best losing face for a small beating that will heal in a weak but, is still an injury which needn’t occurr but for some aggressive A-hole.
You have an absolute right to your life and defending yourself from any injury as any assault can devastate your health and quality of life.
Where?...Almost, not specific
When? ... Nope
not much better but......
The incident happened in September of 2012. Gleason was walking with two female
friends in an alley in south St. Cloud when one of them touched the car Smithers
was riding in. Smithers and the others in the vehicle got out of the car, and Smithers
threw a single punch knocking Gleason to the ground and causing him to hit his
head, knocking him unconscious.
Gleason regained consciousness at St. Cloud Hospital, but later died.

Good looking kid.
Hmmm. Sounds like the kind of son Obama would have if he had a son.
Well, we know it wasn’t a racial issue. Blacks can never be racists. Ask REVERAND Jeremiah Jones or Calypso Louie.
As it should have been. This perp should have gotten a 2nd degree murder charge at minimum, regardless of intent. What did the jag-off who killed your friend get?
I want to know: Will the FBI will go in -like they did with Zimmeraman - and interview everyone the perp’s known for the last 15 years to see if he’s made any ‘anti-white’ racist comments to anyone...
It’s all equal - law enforcement - justice - our rights - or IT’S NOT.
Honestly he wasn’t trying to kill him. It’s a travesty the kid died.
Thugs that even “play” the knockout “game” should lose their lives.
It might cut down on the feral insanity.
Loud music in bars makes sense because bar owners want people to buy drinks - NOT to sit around talking and having a good time on the cheap. But at a wedding? Tacky beyond words...
Smithers apologized for what he called a “complete accident.”
Smithers was accused of jumping out of a car on Sept. 20, 2012, and punching Colton Gleason once in the face.
How the hell is jumping out of a car and punching a man in the face a ‘complete accident’?
war on whites
I don’t know how much of the ten years the dude will serve, but if it’s a substantial amount, I’m OK with this. It’s a homicide rap, he’s going to prison. Maybe it ought to be longer, but it’s no slap on the wrist either.
Several years ago a dear one of mine was held and battered for hours and almost killed. It actually was attempted murder but they charged him with aggravated battery. When I asked the prosecutor he said that the amount of time would be about the same. Sad but at least he was sentenced to 10 although he’ll probably get out in 6-7.
Guess what tough guy, you are going to be the “bell of the ball” and get to play “drop the soap” with every skell in captivity. Enjoy
And by the time he gets out of prison his butt will be just as loose as Barry's in those mom jeans he wears.
The headline makes it sound like an outrage..like it was a fight among college kids and one of them just happened to die. Really covers up the real crime.
What sect of the AMISH does he belong to?
Out in five years after murdering someone. I’ll bet he is a hero in the ‘hood.
Because he was supposed to knock out one of the girls who actually touched his car. /s
Yea, it was the victim’s fault for dying.
I doubt it. He will immediately join up with the black prisoner’s gang where he will be a celebrity for murdering whitey with just one punch.
Shades of Tray...exactly what he tried on Zimmerman.
It’s so pointless to fight. If you win you could kill the guy or someone else. It’s just not worth it to keep from being seen as less than a man.
Sometimes you can’t avoid it, and I realize that, but folks get hot-headed at parties and social gatherings and it never turns out well.
Trayvon Martin was unarmed?
I don’t honestly know. I met Steve a few years after his brother Eric was killed and Steve’s wife told me about it. I’m too well raised to ask her or him for more details but I’ll bet the guy is out and a about already.
And that “affluenza” kid in TX who took Valium and was drunk on beer stolen from Walmart killed 4 people and sent to others to the hospital for the rest of their lives got off with nothing but a trip to a Hollywood style treatment center for massages and horseback riding.
Eric wasn’t even fighting. He wasn’t even looking at the combatants; he was eating a meal, presumably minding his own business.
I realize that. This is still some of the collateral damage that can take place though, and that’s why I wish guys would simply reason with each other and blow it off.
The "knockout game" easily qualifies for the recipient of such action being in fear of great bodily harm or death. It is attempted murder, done with malignant and predetermined intent.
Nobody should be surprised when somebody like St. Trayvon gets his just desserts for initiating an unprovoked assault with intent to create great bodily harm or death.
Of course, in some squalid and degenerate cultures, that's considered rassiss!
Yet another feral...acting feral.
At least it’s more than the 60 days sentence given to a nephew of Mayor Daley in Chicago after he killed someone.
Don’t read into what I wrote. Instead, read what I wrote.
I guess I should have used the /sarc tag.
it was murder, 10 years for murder is crazy
