well in reality it's a good sentence, it's not like they are immediately thrown in jail and that's the end of story. no they are given the chance to pay back what they have stolen plus a dollar or two above to cover added expenses... I think that's fair

Maybe. But getting $186,000 in just 3 month will be extremely difficult, to say the least. So it looks a lot like 15 years behind bars. One year for every $10,000 stolen. Quite harsh sentence in todays world.

Nope. It's not harsh. It's truly and thoroughly deserved. They ticked and stole and did it all for self gratification..... it doesn't matter whether it's to pay for drugs or boats of babies. Stealing is stealing and there can be no excuse for it. Good that they have to pay it back and also good that they ge jail time.

You can see the huge difference between the two decisions with the other article we read
about, with the woman walking free with some hours, doing community work.
And even with less than half the money stolen.

Also remarkable is, the fact about being able to tamper the roulette...

I think they should have buy other fertility drugs than that sweet rhino bonedust for $150k. But it worked at the end isn't it? This story is a mess.

When you read about the reasons why they did this, you do have a degree of sympathy for them. But, i cannot condone any kind of theft and they should be punished accordingly

Cold-hearted and pregnant, not a good combination... That kind of news are verry funny and i read them and can´t believe them sometimes. Which some storys it was possible to make a b-movie Blink And it seems, that in the Casinos happens verry much.

15 years in jail for 150.000 dollars... and when i think of that person in united kingdom who stole 250,000 to play online poker and get it 200 hours of community service if i remember well. If we did a crime and get away with less punishment. Some judges are clearly bribed to use such sentences with recovering the money as quickly as possible.

I have absolutely no idea how the criminal justice system works in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. I even didn't know exactly where this twin island country is located about until 5 minutes ago. It seems to be a good opportunity to do some research and educate myself.

In this case they won't be able to recover the money anyway. But yeah, usually white collar crimes get less harsh sentences anywhere in the world.
