Petters needs to sit still in jail while awaiting trial. He also needs to be the poster child (along with MANY other corporate executives throughoutht US) to get fines and prison time.

That Judge Davis understands the importance of keeping Petters locked up until trial. He still maintains his innocence which just blows me away. But....I'm concerned with all the 'deals' that are being cut with the other perpetrators that he may just walk today.

Innocent until proven guilty is very important- and hardest to think in situations like this. If he leaves the country, then the coppers didn't do a good enough job keeping tabs on him=

Seeing as Petters knew all along that he was defrauding his investors, he should not be allowed to walk, giving him ample opportunity to flee. He should be given a coach class ticket on ConAir to a Federal PHITA prison, and not some slap on the wrist that can be tied up in appeal. The rule of law applies to everyone, and the people need some reassurance that our justice system in fact does work.

Don't you think someone as devious as Petters has stashed millions away in Cayman or Swiss accounts? If they let him out, he is gone, just like Whitey Bulger.

He already has the woman in Sherburne Co. Jail getting him coffee and waiting on him like a guest. He turned down a plea bargain of 30 years. This man has mojo. My guess his he's out.

It's unfortunate that in this country, the belief that you are innocent until proven guilty doesn't hold any water. So many people are so quick to condemn and all it takes is someone to point a finger and yell "witch" and the readily awaiting mob jumps to its feet to put a noose around the neck of anyone accused.
