SO, grab 700 MILLION income, yet the 'penalty' is five years max - POSSIBLY, but unlikely, and a 250 THOUSAND fine, this doesn't balance out, where's the deterrent, would I take a multi MILLION income deal for a few thousands fine and a couple of years behind bars, or, more likely an open prison country club .....

HELL YEA

madness, whatever happened to making the punishment fit the crime
