Tough Penalty- Yeah, right.

"Disgraced former MP Taito Phillip Field's jail sentence shows no one is above the law, Labour and National politicians say.

Field has been jailed for six years, with the sentencing judge saying his offending threatened the foundation of democracy and justice..."

Sounds like a resonably stiff sentence on the face of it.

But what will actually happen is that after serving a very short part of it (in mimimum security), he will be out on home detention.

I would bet on it!
