There was a story of a woman who used her parent's address to allow her daughter to go to a better school and get out of poverty. She was sentenced to 5 years to life for wanting a better life for her child. Not excusing it BUT here these people have ripped off people, institutions and government and they get max 3 years. The justice system needs to be fixed. My guess, and I could be wrong, is in 3 years they will all be out and doing something again that is criminal.

You could say the same thing about Longtime Contra Costa County politician Joe Canciamilla. He committed multiple felonies robbing tax payers for years and gets a slap on the wrist. He will receive no time and only has to pay back 150,000 of which i am sure is nothing compared to what he actually stole. then there is the fire chief who did the same thing which i am sure will result in serving no time. yet three people get caught and everyone wants them locked up for years. then you have the cop you shot an unarmed mentally ill man 10 times who will walk free. i agree with the "justice system" needs fixed. it should be called the who you are or how much money can we get from you system for that seems to be more accurate to how it works.
