Lengthy Sentences

Re “2 Kmart Robbers Get Lengthy Prison Terms,” Dec. 22: The sentencing of two Kmart robbers to around-60-year sentences without parole is not justice. These types of lengthy federal sentences, if widely publicized, will create millions of jurors who will disregard the evidence and vote not guilty.

I cannot believe the Kmart jury would have voted guilty for a mother of three young children who only served as a lookout and driver if the jury had known beforehand that the mandated sentence would be 60 years without parole.
