    Why do they even allow bond for a serious charge such as this?

    For some reason I dont think they thought this through. Also the pictures seem to show they not sorry for doing it but upset they got caught.
    Life is what you make of it, they made a mess and now they must face a reality of being behind bars for a very long time over a monetary amount they could have earned in a short period of normal work. Heck even working at a fast food place would net you as much in a month or so.. And you never have to look over your shoulder or worry if the cops coming to get you.
    Peace of mind in not breaking the law. Can be free to do al the things that life allows.
    Now their only thing to look forward to is visitation day and maybe when they get a letter. They will never be part of society again no matter their place.
    Total waste of life.
