Six years is a bit harsh in my opinion. I'm not a fan of the texting-while-driving thing, but six years of your life in the pen and a remaining lifetime of being a convicted felon seems rather harsh for using a phone while driving. I'll bet it was easy for a good lawyer to play the "send a message" card to a dimwitted jury.

I would think this will be appealed, won, and reduced. I have no experience as a sentencing judge, but I would think a year in prison would suffice while sending a message.
