"'Spam King' gets nearly four years in prison"
U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman ended the reign of the so-called "Spam King," who earned his title by sending out millions of unwanted e-mails, by sentencing the Seattle man to nearly fours years in prison Tuesday....
[Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn] Warma and fellow Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Cohen had asked Pechman to send Soloway away for nine years. But another defense attorney, Richard Troberman, wanted a sentence of two years at the federal prison camp in Sheridan, Ore., and a fine of under $100,000.
Pechman first heard from Soloway, then chose a middle ground.

Do you think that prosecutors Warma andCohen really felt that nine years was in keeping with the *magnitude * of the crime ? Or that their desires reflected considerations of their careers ? I am a "retired " construct. worker in Seattle

Unfortunately, this story has ended in tragedy. Apparently, this jerk killed himself, a woman and a 3 year old.
Why in the world do people kill kids? What possible reason is there to kill a three-year old?
