Man serving six months for beating someone with a baseball bat. On tonight's Deal of the Day, Cam Edwards tells a story from Ogden, Utah, where Scott Ray Ambler, 38, was offered an absurd plea bargain after being charged with attempted murder, aggravated burglary and domestic violence in the presence of child when he went to his estranged wife's house and found another man answering her door. Though the victim spent several days in the hospital after the attack and Ambler's two-year-old son witnessed the traumatizing event, the one-15 years that Ambler should have received was reduced to only six months in jail with visitation rights.
