Boo hoo. You got caught stealing, own up to it and take responsibility.
She can't pay? Well, she'll have to pay the rest of her life. Restitution is none dismissable in Bankruptcy court. She should have paid the $2k and be done with it.
where did they come up with $222,000 for 14 songs? Let's get real for a moment. OK, she owes for the cost of 14 CDs then. How do you like that offer to pay $25,000 to "musicians in need of assistance"? Like what, for drug rehab? Ha ha. And since when did any record company assist any musicians. I thought they specialized in robbing them blind. That's what this case boils down to, robbing the poor woman blind, after she admittedly stole some songs. They are making an example out of her to scare off the thousands of others that did or will do the same thing. But since when is the purpose of our courts to make an example out of people.
