Thats's more then most violent criminals get

He should have robbed a convenience store with a gun. Probably would have gotten a lighter sentence.

Not saying he didn't deserve some kind of punishment (how about a massive, massive fine and a sh*tload of community service) but putting someone in prison amongst rapists and murderers for a non-violent, essentially victimless crime is overkill.

Sigh.... no.

AGGRAVATED ROBBERY is a 1st degree felony which gets 5-years to life.

So compared to those robbers, rapists, and murders... 3 years with eligibility for probation is a walk in the park.

But I do understand what he's saying some of them go crazy like 10 years over this and shooting someone gets far less.. makes you wonder :-/

Re: Thats's more then most violent criminals get

Why should he?? according to the way the corps get punished, and as I see it, this guy got about 400K from his profits.. so maybe he should just get about a $20,000 fine and a slap on the wrists. Isn't that about the same punishment the likes of Comcast gets when they rape the customer or public?
