On September 1, 2007, Du Doan was a 62-year-old man who was fishing at Montrose Harbor in Chicago. He would be just 64 if he were alive today.
Today John J. Haley was sentenced to 10 years for involuntary manslaughter. He faced a sentence of two to five years, but the potential sentence was 10 years because of a prior drug conviction. Haley’s lawyers also moved for a new trial. Undoubtedly because they thought it was unfair he should be convicted of involuntary manslaughter for pushing yet another man into the lake, laughing and walking away as Doan drowned.
If he serves all ten years, he will be just 43 years old when released. But Du Doan will still be dead.
