Robert Chambers has completed a well deserved prison sentence, however, he will serve the rest of his life as a sentence as well. He will forever be recognized anywhere he goes as a murderer, that in itself is a life sentence.
I think the sentence he got was too easy for what he did. If he was really sorry why didn't he use his prison time to try to rehabilitate. He's just trying to get money now.
I do not think the sentence was fair. Convicted drug dealers receive longer jail sentences then Robert Chambers did.
I absolutely think it was fair. He has served the sentence down to the day. Fifteen years in prison is a long time to think about things you've done. Not only to think about what you did to get in there, but everything you've done in life. Robert has finally shown remorse, regret, and responsibility. Every day for the rest of his life, Robert will have to think about the fact that he's responsible for Jennifer's death... and that's enough punishment in itself.
After watching the video it seems clear that he is still the same sociopathatic person he was when he went sentenced to prison. His eyes had no emotion; they were empty. I am glad to hear he left the country.

Unfortunately, Robert Chambers still hasn't come clean with the truth regarding Jennifer Levin's murder. His apologies don't really count, because he's not telling the truth in my opinion. His behavior at the time of the murder did not match the way he alleged it was an accident. Also, his drug abuse in jail does not consitutent redeemed behavior on the crime he was accused of doing. I do have empathy for his mother... Hher hard work to give him the finer things in life was not appreciated. He will aways have to carry the load of guilt until he asks to be forgiven. He said he was sorry, but he did not ask for any forgivess. That's what I saw in that interview.

I think 15 years for killing is not fair! Jennifer Levin does not get to come back to her family in 15 years, she is gone forever, he is out now, to do what he wants,but Jennifer will never do the things that she wanted to do in life!

Whether we think, post conviction, that Robert Chambers' sentence was fair is completely irrelevant. It was a sentence delivered in a court of law and served to term. This decision is final and unalterable. Even if Chambers were unrepentant, although he appears to be, he could not be tried twice for the same crime

15 years in prison sounds fair to me in this particular case. Chambers needed the time to think things through, which he obviously did. He seems to be a wiser person, and people should just let him live out the rest of his life. He is a smart person and it would be extremely stupid of him to commit another crime.
Are you kidding? Is 15 years ever enough for murder? He took a young ladies life!

Robert Chambers is a very, very, very scary man. I wonder how long it will be before he committs another violent crime against a woman.

He did his time, I hope he can get on with his life.
