White-collar criminals

So the former business manager of the Highland Nursing Home in Massena gets probation, after stealing $18,000. This often happens, white-collar criminals don’t go to jail after stealing large sums of money from businesses and non-profits. They should be treated the same as someone who robbed a bank – grand larceny, and a prison term. Bet a lot less people would be robbing employers who trusted them, if they knew for sure they were going to prison. It’s even worse when they steal from elderly nursing home patients; can’t for the life of me understand why the justice system has any sympathy for this type of criminal.
