Ragnar: You might want to buy a copy of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. 405 months is the highest "non-life" sentence that a convicted felon can receive in the federal court system. There is no 2,400 month sentence (200 years) under the sentencing guidelines. Plus, even if she was sentenced to 12 years, there is no parole in the federal system. Prisoners receive 54 days of "good time" per year if they stay out of trouble. This means that "good" prisoners serve roughly 87.1 percent of their sentence at best, not the roughly 50 percent that your post indicates.

21 mail and wire fraud charges at 20 years each plus another charge at 10 years = 430 years.

She will most likely get 12 years and parole in just over 6.

This woman is facing 200 + years for stealing $1.3 million but a guy crashes a plane with $25 million in pure blow and evades federal marshals for 4 years gets a 7-year stretch in a minimum security prison (where he just walked out of a few weeks ago)?

A thief stealing from thieves. One will go to prison and the other will continue to steal from and destroy the lives of West Vriginia's poorest and most vulnerable citizens. That's pretty messed up.
