Judge Gives Stolen Valor Convicts Unique Sentences

| August 24, 2019

Two men were convicted of crimes but because they also claimed false military status the judge, Judge Greg Pinski, also put some unique requirements on their sentences.

Ryan Morris and Troy Nelson both claimed to be military veterans to try and receive lesser sentences and establish eligibility to enter Judge Pinski’s Veterans Treatment Court.  It didn’t work.

Besides making them watch a video as a fake was confronted, Pinski added:

Both men must wear a sign at the Montana Veterans Memorial during each Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremony while they are under court supervision; the signs will read: I AM A LIAR. I AM NOT A VETERAN. I STOLE VALOR. I DISHONORED ALL VETERANS.

In addition, they will be required to complete the following:

– Hand-write the names of all 6,756 Americans killed in Iraq and Afghanistan wars
– Hand-write the obituaries of the 40 Montanans killed in Iraq and Afghanistan wars
– Write letters of apology to the following organizations: American Legion, AmVets, Disabled American Veterans, the Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the Vietnam Veterans of America
– 441 hours of community service

Justice can be sweet.  Kudos to Judge Pinski.

    BZ!

  2. Friend says:

    CLONE Judge Pinski….

  3. The Al says:

    Good on the judge for adding the public humiliation on Memorial and Veteran’s Day. Maybe if we had more judges handing out punishments like that to valor vultures, we’d have fewer people riding the phony pony

  4. Graybeard says:

    BOOM!

    Justice served.

  5. The Stranger says:

    And THAT’S how you do that!

  6. Obi says:

    Geez…. How come he had to be so lenient??? 🙂

  7. Ex-PH2 says:

    I think the judge was being kind and reasonable. A more aggressive approach is also appropriate, e.g., walking the distance (no rides, period) to a from a veteran’s funeral holding up one of those signs.

  8. Retired Grunt says:

    It will be struck down on appeal I believe. Unfortunate, but true, if they do appeal. Hopefully, they don’t.

  9. USAFRetired says:

    OUTSTANDING

  10. Fyrfighter says:

    I’m sure the ACLU will sue to have the sentence reversed, because it’s mean or something, but damn good on the judge for trying!

  11. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    EPIC!

    Thank you Judge Pinski.

  12. Claw says:

    It looks to me that the stolen valor video Judge Pinski made those two phony’s watch was the one about that fat ass Sean Yetman.

    Ya’ll remember him, right? The turd w/3 CIBs who was shopping with his Sergeant Major at a Philadelphia mall on Black Friday.

    You’re good to go in my book, Judge Pinski!!

  13. A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

    Cool beans! I hope that they end up with jail time if they decide to bawl and appeal.

  14. STSC(SW/SS) says:

    How about requiring them to go through a gauntlet composed of every vet in America. My fire hose from Shellback initiation needs a workout.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      They need some “truth serum” from a good, old fashioned CPO Initiation… to go with the Shillelagh!

  15. Charles says:

    Perhaps Lester Kent Brown should get a copy of this judgment.

    • Merton V Eagles CD says:

      It is about time that the makes these fakes pay for the Honor that they have stolen. It’s not a “Right” to serve One’s country. It’s a Privilege, don’t dishoner the uniform or those who have served with Pride. It doesn’t matter which military that you serve as long as you do so with Honor and Respect.

  16. 5th/77th FA says:

    Let the punishment fit the crime! I like it.

    Anybody up for a Road Trip to Montana this November or next May?

  17. Green Thumb says:

    Loser Motherfuckers.

    I wonder if they are keeping their affiliation with All-Points Logistics under wraps…?

    • Inbred Redneck says:

      Yeah, but after Thor,Bubba, Julio and Mr. Tiny get through with ’em, they’ll be “looser” mofos.
      Way to go Judge Pinski.

  18. Prior Service says:

    Any ONE of those would be harsh for anybody with a shred of honor. Add them all together and, wow. Nice work, Judge.

  19. Rich D says:

    Thank you judge Pinski….

    A more humane Mikado never
    Did in Japan exist,
    To nobody second,
    I’m certainly reckoned
    A true philanthropist.
    It is my very humane endeavour
    To make, to some extent,
    Each evil liver
    A running river
    Of harmless merriment.

    My object all sublime
    I shall achieve in time —
    To let the punishment fit the crime —
    The punishment fit the crime;
    And make each prisoner pent
    Unwillingly represent
    A source of innocent merriment!
    Of innocent merriment!

    All prosy dull society sinners,
    Who chatter and bleat and bore,
    Are sent to hear sermons
    From mystical Germans
    Who preach from ten till four.
    The amateur tenor, whose vocal villainies
    All desire to shirk,
    Shall, during off-hours,
    Exhibit his powers
    To Madame Tussaud’s waxwork.

    The lady who dyes a chemical yellow
    Or stains her grey hair puce,
    Or pinches her figure,
    Is painted with vigour
    And permanent walnut juice.
    The idiot who, in railway carriages,
    Scribbles on window-panes,
    We only suffer
    To ride on a buffer
    In Parliamentary trains

    My object all sublime
    I shall achieve in time —
    To let the punishment fit the crime —
    The punishment fit the crime;
    And make each prisoner pent
    Unwillingly represent
    A source of innocent merriment!
    Of innocent merriment!

    His object all sublime
    He will achieve in time —
    To let the punishment fit the crime —
    The punishment fit the crime;
    And make each prisoner pent
    Unwillingly represent
    A source of innocent merriment!
    Of innocent merriment!

    No. They’re not worthy to even touch the granite or marble thereof.

    But they can pick up litter and dog shit in those areas.
