Man spits on cop, gets life in jail

Oklahoma man had faced just a year in wife-beating case

ASSOCIATED PRESS

OKLAHOMA CITY, July 2 - An Oklahoma man arrested on suspicion of beating his wife faced year in prison and a fine. But when he spit in an arresting officer's face, he got a life sentence instead, officials said on Wednesday.
John Carl Marquez, 36, was convicted of "placing bodily fluid upon a government employee," a felony that can carry a life sentence because of the possibility of transmitting a potentially deadly disease.
State judge April Sellers White sentenced Marquez this week even though Marquez and the officer tested negative for any communicable disease.
Marquez also was convicted of assaulting a police officer, and a jury recommended the maximum sentence because he had previous convictions.
Marquez, arrested several months ago, could have received one year in prison and a $3,000 fine for wife-beating, according to the Creek County court clerk's office.
His lawyers said they plan to appeal.

Although I would never condone a domestic A&B, I think giving the man a life sentence is a little much for spitting on an Officer. I do agree that there needs to be some sort of strict punishment for this guy being a repeat offender and everything but a life sentence?! Anyone else share this view?

NO! You ever been spit in the face. I have, more than once! Dusch bag gets what he deserves!
Tell em man! Every freaking Detox-sumbitch in the world (Hoch-tewwy)
about 50 times! Even Housing Cop never had to put up with that!
In the ER getting my eyes irrigated as a precaution from some HIV-Humping-skel!! That stopped when they decided it was a waste of time.
=P~

This guy absolutely gets what he deserves, let him spit in another inmates face while hes locked up or spit in a CO's face. He will get what is coming to him

They should have given the cop a five minute one on one session with this guy in the interview room with the door locked. A life sentence though... 8O

That is more along the lines of what I was thinking...some good ol' fashioned discipline! But you know later down the road that might just compound things and the next time this guy ran into a cop, he might just be shooting something else instead of a fat loogy!
