Doesn't he own a house? Put him in jail? Great that costs us! Take his money, make sure he never EVER gets a similar job. Done! That's a plea bargain. No, then put him some foreign prison that costs us a hell of lot less and take his citizenship away. Again. Done!

A sad day, for sure, but boy am I happy that the courts are in charge instead of the commenters on these threads. A little compassion people goes a long way in helping people turn a page, people. If we want better, we have to behave better. All of us.

Not sure I get the logic on this - DA charges Mr Hanretty on (I think) nine felony counts, two school districts and communities are taken down, but if he repays what he stole (e.g. by fundraising among his remaining supporters) he might not spend ANY time in prison?
