If he was clever enough to know how to hack , then he is clever enough to know the consequences.
If he gets off, then its just another message to potential deviants that you can get away with wrong doing.
Its time people were properly punished, so others get a message of what will happen to them if they do it.
and if they are of diminished capacity , it sends a message to the carers/parents that they need to also take responsibility.

seeing as i am ranting, i am also sick of the "sorry judge, i kicked the crap out of this guy, but i was off my face on drugs" defense. Why arent these people being then convicted of 2 crimes??? They have just confessed to both openly. No, instead, they get a reduced/probationary sentence because they were not in control of their actions.
i'm sure they same excuse wouldnt work in the case of "sorry judge, i mowed down 5 people in my car, but i was langers drunk at the time"
if only i was a frog
