Judge mulls sentence in dragging case


“It feels like I’m watching two different movies,” the judge said.

Lowy did say he believes state prison is an appropriate sentence for Rodriguez, but at this point isn’t sure how long to send him there.

He’ll hear from the victim during a hearing on Dec. 10 before making an offer.

Rodriguez is then free to either accept what the judge decides or ask for a trial. Nothing said during yesterday’s hearing can be used against him.
