saved the prison system a lot of money. advanced cancer chemo and pain meds are much more expensive

What does the cancer have to do with her stealing shit? Was she stealing medical supplies? Did she have a brain tumor that was causing her to act out of character? Why are they trying to frame the story in a way that is meant to make me feel sympathetic towards this thief?

you shouldn't get jail for shoplifting specially with cancer. you should only get jail if you are dangerous to other people. not corporations

Just saw picture of mom and she looks like a descent ordinary lady sitting in a normal living room, so steeling to feed your family is out of the question! Ok so she made a mistake, corrupt politicians have done worse and get congratulated, for her I think she should do $100+ hrs of community service. Volunteer at a cancer research center or something. Unless she only has a few months left, I forgive her just as Jesus already did.
