Repayment not enough

SHARE Repayment not enough

John R. Jensen of Taylorsville suggests that the compassionate thing to do would be for District Attorney David Yocom to offer Mayor Nancy Workman the option of simply repaying the money she stole from the taxpayers instead of prosecuting her (Readers' Forum, Sept. 26). Wouldn't all criminals appreciate such an option?

For example, if someone stole a car and were caught, they would have to return the car to its rightful owner and no further action would be taken. Of course, if they were not caught, they would be able to keep the car. Sounds like a no-lose situation to me.
