Minimum sentence?!?! So was the judge a fan!!

Nickelback frontman given minimum sentence, $600 fine for drunk driving
SURREY, B.C. – The lawyer for Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger says he will appeal the rock star’s conviction for clocking a blood alcohol reading at almost twice the legal limit.
Kroeger was handed a $600 fine and a year-long driving suspension today at a sentencing hearing in Surrey, B.C. and said afterwards that he made a mistake that he hopes his fans don’t repeat themselves.
Kroeger had been pulled over for speeding in June 2006 and a police officer suspected him of drinking.
Kroeger was acquitted of an impaired driving charge, but convicted on the charge of driving with a blood-alcohol level over .08.
His lawyer, Marvin Stern, says the case involved important legal issues that should be considered on appeal.
Stern says Kroeger was convicted on what he called a `technical convention’ and acquitted on the charge of whether the singer was drunk or not.
