Interesting that the 'groper' faces up to 180 days in jail for each of 4 counts (possibly 2 years?), but the woman who negligently killed Diane Whitman is fined just 400 dollars. Personally, I would rather my wife was groped by some idiot on a bike trail that killed by an negligent driver. Women can recover from a groping; death is usually permanent...

PghSteve, it does seem out of balance, but I'll note that intent matters in the law. So the real question is: is intentional (and serial) groping worse than negligent homicide? I'm not going to weight in on that, but I just wanted to point out the real issue.
