How would you compare a homeless mother of a 5 year old using a friends address to get her son enrolled in school being sentenced to five...?

years in prison for larceny, while the rich and famous do 2 weeks for much grander larceny? The authorities said the 5 year old had a "stolen education".

    There are two-tiers in the justice system. The one that regular people go through and the one that the wealthy or powerful go through. Kind of like how there are poor people in federal prison with life sentences for simply selling marijuana while the Sackler family can have their business, Purdue Pharma, simply declare bankruptcy and then be off the hook for any responsibility for the opioid crisis.

    The woman you are speaking of had a reduced sentence by the judge. She was going to jail for other crimes, and was facing 12 years in prison for those crimes alone. She was sentenced to 5 years for those crimes. Then she was 'punished for the above mentioned crime, not by adding onto the sentence, but having it as a concurrent sentence. So, the lady in question should have been in jail for over a decade, but was only sentenced to 5 years total. So, in everything but on paper, she didn't serve any time for lying about her adress.

    Before asking questions like this, at least do a 1 minute Google search.

      This article was modified and the details you mentioned a few days after the original news article was posted. The stuff you now know wasn't yet available when it was first published. YA is about asking questions,did you read terms of service.

    Why am I not surprised to hear of this discrepancy?

    She had a bad attorney...probably a public defender.

    One paid too much, and one passed off the bill to others without paying anything at all. Neither kid had to meet academic standards.

    One got a longer prison sentence, but also had a prior criminal history. I doubt either will serve (or have served) the full amount sentenced.

    @abdul: That is also stolen, but that was not the subject of your question.

      so, what about the millions of illegal alien kids who are being educated in the US? How is that not "stolen education?"

    Well, troll you have the right idea about using words to communicate but you are not putting them in the right order. People will make fun of you online, oh wait they already! How about you go back to elementary school and learn proper grammar.

    When asking people to compare two things you should put them together in the same sentence.
