http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/08/31/teenager-gets-jail-sentence-after-seven-cent-robbery/ Haddad is his lawyer. The fixation on the seven cents annoys me. I'm sure he might think he's been treated unjustly for the rest of his life and say it was only for seven cents and it's not fair, waah... But I assume it is just an accident that their victim happened to be carrying seven cents. It's probably not that he had millions and the robbers chose to take just seven cents. Bet they would have been quite happy to rob thousands of dollars if they could. So IMO the articles should forget the seven cents. Harsh or not, the sentence is not only for seven cents but for assaulting, robbing and threatening an elderly man.
