AS I SEE IT ----- Mike "Mainer Mike" Brown.

It's a good thing this treasurer didn't steal from a mafia run union, or this person would have a lot more to worry about than just probation.

Maybe we should just do some research on the history of things lately? OK, class...here are your guidelines:

$0 -$50,000 Penalty:_______

$50,000 -$100,000 Penalty:______

$100,000 -$200,000 Penalty:_______

Over $200,000 Penalty:________

Just fill in the blanks. How much can I steal / embezzle before I move from probation to actual jail time?

The system is in need of a "tweak" I think.
