I just see it different, Larson conned him, doesn't make him any less guilty but come on. Jail for an old man, what possible good could that do.
Sorry, but I don't find the age issue to be relevant to the issue of disregarding the law, be it as an elected official or a citizen. If the idiot who is getting off with a slap on the wrist was a "younger person," would the Court's determinations have differed?
To me, that is suggesting to our youth that you can be a crook but that you should take advantage of the Seneca County courts by not being "caught" until your are a "senior."
