Not even a slap on the wrist...

In the "News of the Weird" for last week, I read the following:
After pleading guilty in Cardiff Crown Court to forging an uncle’s checks worth $65,000, Hayley Price, 42, was fined $8, given a suspended sentence and ordered to do community service. The judge reasoned that Price was broke, having already spent the money.
Can you guess why white collar crime has a high recidivism rate (i.e. a lot of repeat offenders)?

  1. That seems like fair punishment, as long as her community service involves collecting $65,000 worth of aluminum cans. Ridiculous.
