Harsher than usual

I appreciate the judge in the Ney case imposing a harsher sentence than usual. It was done for all the right reasons. If we take a position of public trust we should be held to a higher standard. Here's a quote,
"The sentence was harsher than recommended by prosecutors, Huvelle said, because Ney had violated the trust placed on him as a public official. "Both your
constituents and the public trusted you to represent them honestly," she said.

Right on.
