Letter: Father’s penalty not harsh enough

In response to The Forum’s Jan. 30 article titled, “No jail time for Moorhead father whose baby died in van”:

The article states that Andrew Sandstrom left his 5-month-old daughter in the family van in front of their Moorhead apartment for several hours June 11 while he slept.

I disagree with Sandstrom’s sentence of 10 years’ probation. He should at least have to serve some jail time for what he did. People accused of lesser crimes serve jail time, so why isn’t he? Sandstrom committed murder. What he did was wrong and illegal. I believe he should receive a minimum of 10 years in prison and another 10 years’ probation after that.
