That's a common misconception, prison would have actually been far
easier for his classification type. He probably would have gone to
minimum custody and work release right off the bat. Not being able to
pay rent nor eat would have been worse. <g> The stuff you see on TV is
mostly Maximum-Custody for the purely pathological. Only a few live like
that when you consider that 2.7 million are locked up. The vast majority
serve time in Medium or Minimum custody. Those will be released if they
keep their noses clean, so they do. Ric
