Only you would say something like that UNLESS it was YOU that stole some cheap item and got caught.<quoted text>Being drunk or high is NOT an excuse. They did wrong and the punishment is NOT harsh at all.
The punishment should fit the crime, ask that Judge how come their crime is harser than a drunk who smashes into another car and walks away or say a cops kid who gets bushed for drugs and walks home to his day free of any charges?
I could see if they destroyed all the punkins and did other damage but two Two Dollar punkins, as I said in another post, the Judge must be friends of the McCall's.
Not saying there should not be some punishment, paying for what they stole but 40 hours of labor when rapist, murdered and others get less.
Every Judge in NM needs to be replaced every few years by VOTE, not by the Governor and every Judge must have a law degree if they don't.
