Question of the Week: Do you think the 28-year prison term is too tough, or maybe not tough enough?

By the C|C Whistleblower Lawyer Team

peanutprisonA former executive of a peanut company was recently sentenced to 28 years in prison for his role in a scheme to sell peanuts contaminated with salmonella.  Hundreds of people were sickened — and 9 people died — from the tainted food (you can read more about it here).  In the past, other food executives have received prison terms for distributing infected foods that resulted in outbreaks and even deaths, but the punishments have been on the magnitude of months or a few years in jail.

Do you think the 28-year prison term is too tough, or maybe not tough enough?

    Please let us know why in the comment section below.
