I'm not saying I support the sentence, but I'm pretty sure that even if the sentence was for selling one DVD, there is more to the story than just
If it was just some guy who happened to have one pirated DVD he would not have been under investigation in the first place. Just like they got Al
Capone on tax evasion his sentence reflected all his other known, but not convicted for crimes. He got 11 years, the longest sentence ever
the time for tax evasion.
Not siding with the court here, just trying to point out the way the system works. 15 years is a long time for 6 DVD's, but in reality he was
sentenced for the stuff he wasn't convicted for also. Even though I agree the sentence is ridiculous.
Originally I was just supporting what Travis said.
