I didn't mean to open Pandora's Box with my post. I know a bit about the case I mentioned (PM me if you'd like to discuss details) but that's not the point of this thread. My point is that sometimes the "label" that gets put on the inmate (i.e. the sentence) doesn't necessarily reflect the offense the inmate actually committed. The "convicted murderer" I wrote to didn't murder anybody. The guy convicted of "illegal sexual acts with a minor under 16" didn't actually have sex with a minor under 16, at least not physically. Both are guilty of crimes, but their convictions/reasons for incarceration don't necessarily reflect their actual offense, and you wouldn't know that unless you dug in a bit. So my answer to the poll would be "it depends upon the circumstances."
