Why put a 62-year-old with a clean record in jail at all...

Especially when we apparently can't keep rapists, child molestors and other people who are really a danger to society behind bars because of prison over-crowding?

I'm not saying that Martha Stewart should be let off the hook, but let the punishment fit the crime. Levy a huge fine, demand community service, put her on house arrest. It's her first offense, and she's 62 with a spotless record. Putting her in jail when our prisons are so full we have to release the real societal menaces just doesn't make any sense to me at all.
