That will learn him. Sounds like he is getting a punishment that is too burdensome for the offense he is guilty of.

Sarcasm level = stun.

Karma, being what it is, he will go to prison.

Making beds and being civil is beyond the abilities of some.

(Sarcasm also)

Judging: when the criminal says his sentence should have been harsher, you're doing it wrong.

The article doesn't specify, but I'm betting he doesn't have any prior criminal activity.

If he can clean up his act, he stays out of jail. It's worth a try, since it wasn't a violent crime.

They are giving him a second chance. If he blows it, that's his own fault.

This conviction will probably stay on his record, but a LOT of petty first time criminals come out of prison with a lot of new criminal skills.

At least he doesn't have to say he served time in prison, on job applications... assuming he IS applying for jobs.

If I was the judge, I would have made getting a job part of the 'probation'.
