That's grand larceny! Then some. With the fine, can't it be tighted into the Kingdom of God? "Thou shall not steal" It sure sends a message! Prisons are filled with those who were not taught who to honor! First..... God!

This guy is an absolute a-hole, and has the balls to ask for leniency!! Give him the full 20 years the guidlines suggest. He is just as arrogant today asking for a shorter sentence as he was when he felt it was ok to steal from the company that trusted him. Shows no remorse for what he did so the 20 years will give him time to reflect. Bye Bye JP.
