He probably owed 99k on the boat. They are getting off extremely light after winning $3 million over the years.

They got off light.
1. They should have lost their fishing licenses permanently.
2. The guys they cheated out of all that money should get a go at them.

"we got weights in fish."

Wasn't one of these dudes caught using counterfeit $100 bills?

Is that accurate? They won $3M over the years??? If so, they got off WAY too light.

They got off light but I think that anything other than the current case is just speculation.

The DA is stuck with evidence only of a first offense.

How were they passing the polygraph? Surely they arenít paying out without top teams being polygraphed. Punishment should be stiffer in my opinion.

The “got off too easy” can be applied to so many sentences these days—-how many manslaughter/murder convictions get less than 10 years?

Yep. The crime at hand wouldíve won them $28k. Prosecuting for only that crime, it seems like a relatively fair penalty.

Some folks have no soul I guess and can get away with it.

Ridiculously light punishment.

They still deserve an arse whooping from all the legit fishermen that they stole and cheated through the years.

That ain't no lie!
One of my friends invited me to go "fishing" with him one day.
We got to the lake and started running trot lines.
I didn't know they were not his!
We got back to boat ramp with a welcoming committee waiting for us.
Barely escaped without knuckle bumps....and that was for a few catfish.
If I ever go to running somebodies trotlines, I'm asking; "Are these yours?"
