    So you feel that political crimes are less of an offense than economic crimes. Do you fit violent crimes somewhere in the middle?

    "What are you in for?"
    "Rape."
    What about you?"
    "Murder."
    "And finally, you?"
    "Oh, well, I stole President Obama's teleprompter."

    Federal Time is hard time and there is no parole. You get about 10-% off for good behavior but that's about it. He might be doing State time, it's not clear from the article. Either way, his sentence was light and an obvious plea bargain.

    Most likely he's going to get out on parole in a few years and then go steal some more trucks until he gets caught again.

    "The theft of government property is a serious offense," Assistant U.S. Attorney Roderick Young said during Virginia resident Eric Brown’s sentencing hearing, according to NBC News. "It's all the more serious when the property belongs to the White House Communications Agency."
    Yes, the property of the White House Communications Agency is sacrosanct.
