Dylann Roof’s Friend Gets 27 Months; Failed To Report Crime

The only person with whom Dylann Roof shared his racist plot to massacre worshippers at a historically black South Carolina church was sentenced Tuesday to 27 months in prison for failing to report a crime and for lying to the FBI.

Joey Meek cried at sentencing Tuesday in Charleston by the same federal judge who presided over Roof’s trial, which ended in January with Roof being sentenced to death for the slaughter of nine people at Emanuel AME church.

“I’m really, really sorry. A lot of beautiful lives were taken,” said Meek, who began to cry at sentencing.

Meek had faced 27 to 33 months behind bars.

I suspect that this guy will do his 33 months in a segregated cell, otherwise his life isn't going to last long.

That chump should have gotten a life sentence as well for guilt through association. He'll probably make a few new "friends" while in the clink.

This same standard should be used on corrupt Politians.

He's lucky to have gotten off this easy! Accessory to a crime of murder should have gotten him life in prison.
