Another case of a Judge unclear on the concept that if you kidnap someones children and threaten them with death unless a $500,000 ransom is paid, hands out a mere 4 year prison sentence.
A light walk in the park prison sentence meted out as the judge states is due in part because the offender has the support of his family.
How touching and heartwarming, you can be certain this kidnapper had the support of his family before the kidnapping, so what's the difference?
The difference is in the Judge's "Bizzaro World" it is okay to terrorize your young children with death, and a lifetime of terrorized memories for the family has no meaning, unless you carry out your threats.

SURREY - A man has been sentenced to four years in jail for his part in kidnapping the daughter of a furniture store owner, a much lighter sentence than the 10 years and two months his accomplice is serving.
Gurpreet Singh Hundal, 35, had pleaded guilty to kidnapping Rachna Jaswal on the evening of Jan. 19, 2007.
His companion in crime was Amandeep Randhawa, a former employee of Jaswal's father who had been fired.
Randhawa was the instigator of the plot to kidnap one of the owner's
daughters and had made an abortive attempt to kidnap Jaswal's sister
the night before he succeeded in kidnapping Jaswal.
father was called shortly after his daughter had been snatched and was
told to pay a $500,000 ransom or his daughter would be killed.
