    Please can someone explain to me how a bail is set nearly 7 times lower the she stole. Hell, she should be able to do this at least six more times

    Tell me, how do you live the “style’ in jail? Seriously, an RN, who would do this, should get the maximum time. Luckily property crimes are punished more severely, than child rape, so she should get YEARS.
