These sentences unmatched to crimes

What is wrong with our legal system? Ex-teacher Jack Pickup has been sentenced to two years of probation and 200 hours of community service and a court cost fine of $3,035. This is for sexting a 15-year-old former student -- a 15-year-old girl!

However, Scripps heir Michael Scripps got nine years of jail time for stealing money from his mother and his uncle. I doubt that he left his family broke!

The above sentences should be switched ASAP. To give Mr. Pickup "community" service is a sin and as illegal as could be. To give Mr. Scripps community service could help him a lot. 'Nuff said.
