    71 and gets a sentence for 150 years, yet someone of 18 or 20 commits a murder and only gets 12-18 years in prison, something ent right there.

    Sentencing him for that long is just a joke, and just trying to prove a point IMO, he'll be dead in under 20 so why not just sentence him for 30 years?

    Agree they are proving a point with the length of the sentance it means death in all but name.

    Throw away the key in my honest opinion.......

    I agree with Buckle in the fact you really can get away with murder nowadays.....but if it were my family he ripped off, I'd want blood!!

    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!

    I fail to see how what he did was worse than murder or rape etc.

    ATEOTD, people who were affected by what he did commited suicide over losing all there money. and yeah its more to prove a point, but whats the difference between 30 and 150, either way, he aint getting out.

    It depends on whos POV your looking at it from, his actions led to ppl killing themselves, some would say manslaughter to a degree.

    His actions caused inconceivable hurt for many people, $65billion and most hasnt been found.
    His sentence was for that crime and not murder/rape, so it cant be compared each judge makes there own decision on the crime, if they dont want to send someone down for life for murder it isnt the prosecuting judge [in this case] fault.
