Man Steals $100M - Gets 14 Years
And probably 7 w/ good behavior.

But smoke pot at a Dead show - 10 year minimum.

:freak:

NEW YORK - A computer technician who prosecutors say touched off the largest identity theft in U.S. history was sentenced to 14 years in prison Tuesday by a judge who said the damage he caused was "almost unimaginable."

Philip A. Cummings, 35, of Cartersville, Ga., a former help-desk worker for a Long Island software company, apologized before U.S. District Judge George B. Daniels imposed the sentence in Manhattan.

The government has estimated that the identity theft scheme involved tens of thousands of victims and caused losses of between $50 million and $100 million.

1. Hey, it's only his first strike.
If, on the other hand, he'd stolen a pizza slice three times, he's looking at life.
