state changed the law to ensure future fairness. but the man we profiled still sits in jail. 10 investigates noah pransky spoke with his family who wonder when he'll ever be coming home. for every criminal whose sentence may not be harsh enough... there's someone like erik weyant; a felon serving a sentence so severe... you have to wonder who ever writes the laws. "two seconds of his life....took 20 years away from him..." "...from all of us." erik's mother, linda, wonders every day how a quick dispute outside a lakeland bar translated into a mandatory 20- year-sentence without parole. "he hurt no one. other than himself." once a jury found erik guilty in 2007 of firing his gun as he left a late-night altercation - even though there was no intent to kill anyone - a judge had no choice but to sentence the 23- year-old small- business owner to two decades behind bars...with no chance for parole. and even though the legislature has since removed aggravated assault from its tough-on- crime '10-20-life' law.....

"i think erik's paid more than enough 9 years in prison for a crime where nobody was injured, uh, i think he's paid his debt." but first, the governor or a cabinet member would have to nominate erik's case for review. working in his

citizen in jail; - nobody was hurt in the incident; - and, the legislature, governor, nra, and florida sheriff's association all agreed last year that the state's "10-20-life" mandatory minimum law was not intended to include cases like erik's. "no one should be judged by the worst mistake they've ever made." meanwhile, back at home... after nine years of celebrating erik's prison milestones.... mom linda is anxious to go back to celebrating more traditional worrying about the more traditional concerns: "well, if he can find someone that he really loves and start a new family before i'm too old. i'm already there.
