The woman who was jailed for five months for accepting a pair of looted shorts from her lodger has been freed on appeal. Instead she gets 75 hours community service (plus the week in jail she's already served). That's better: more proportionate, less vindictive. Some of the sentences that were handed out in the first flush of judicial reaction have been making us look like a panicky third world dictatorship.
