Compared to many others who have allegedly stolen or questionably obtained far larger sums, a 12 weeks in prison - although a welcome change for the better from our courts - seems unduly excessive.

i agree those that seem to get caught stealing from retail places get sentenced yet those who rob OAP get supervision orders.
