Judge Refuses To Reconsider Quinn's Sentence

(Columbia, SC)  --  A judge is standing by a decision a prosecutor says was too soft.  

Judge Carmen Mullen yesterday upheld her decision to sentence former Lexington State Rep. Rick Quinn to probation, community service and a fine.  

Quinn was sentenced after pleading guilty to misconduct in office, which is a misdemeanor.  

The prosecutor wanted a harsher sentence, but "The State" reports Mullen told him the plea deal limited her options.
