Huh. This reminds me of a phrase I'm so fond of;
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes
A thief takes 7 cents, a congressman takes millions...
The only difference between a thief and a politician is the amount... :wink:
I wonder how they split the money.
Interesting, the judge made him a felon for life. Maybe I'm just old and set in my ways, but in my youth, if I did something wrong, then I was the one to blame, not the person who handed out the punishment to me.Quote:
Stewart's lawyer, Laurin Haddad, had pleaded with Walsh to treat her client as a youthful offender, so that a felony conviction wouldn't remain on his permanent record.
"For 7 cents, now you're making someone a felon for the rest of his life," Haddad told the Post-Standard.
Of course if I had done something to go before a judge on, I'd have been standing the whole time. My dad would have made sure I wouldn't have been able to sit for quite some time!
