Ten years for murder only?--KDP3 (talk) 02:22, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

He wasnt able to kill the pope, so its Just assault. I think. 164.116.47.180 (talk) 15:37, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

He killed another guy; that was murder and that was ten years. Nineteen years was reasonable for the Pope thing, at least compared to other sentences. And no, it isn't just assault, attempting a crime is an offence in its own right. Therefore, the actual charge was attempted murder. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 16:24, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
