jail might help

Why is the principal offering advice on sentencing? In fact, why is she involved at all? Parents and students of the school are the victims here, not the principal. As the article says, the school system is not a sponsor of the PTO and does not support it financially. The judge stated that Garfield deserved jail time, but was would go with the principal and board recommendation. Seems to me, a little jail time would be a good deterrent to some of non-profit thefts that are so common now. If we avoided putting anyone with children in jail, a lot more criminals would be walking free.
