    only 30 months? Plus you know he won’t serve all 30. They should have made it something like 5 years. Hell, if he’s got a bunch of money stashed, he’s only got to serve a year or less than he’s living large again.

    Well, it’s a step in the right direction. Personally I think spammers should spend a day in jail for each message they spend.

    Normally I don’t like our prison system being used as a form of legal slavery, but for spammers, I’ll make an exception. Letting rapists and murderers walk around in the hot sun picking up litter on the side of the road doesn’t seem like a good idea to me, but I don’t see a problem with spammers being given the option to do so.

    For each message they SEND, that is.

    This was Federal court and he’ll serve 24.5 months of the 30 he was sentenced to. Federal “good time” is 15 percent.
