Con artists add to woes of grieving Calif. family. Should con artists who victimize families who lost a loved one face stiffer criminal penalties than other con artists?

    I do understand the sentiment here, but, to create a harsher penalty because of other circumstances would be akin to the hate crime laws of to which I am vehemently opposed. However, you could always add a charge of depraved indifference or something along those lines.

    THAT is just so sad ..
    1. To rip off a donation box .. LOWER than low .. (just sickening)
    2. but to take advantage of the Elderly .. and rip of a Grandma .. that's even worse ..

    I do hope that both face the bar of justice .. and get the stiffest penalties that can be applied.

    It's so easy to be sentimental and say that they should be charged with a more serious offense, but all crime victims suffer a great deal. Such circumstances can be considered at sentencing, however

    That's lower than low to take unfair advantage of a grieving family.
