Unfair "Justice?"

The Times Leader posted two articles today dealing with a student who urinated on a nativity scene and a woman who attacked her husband with a hot frying pan and a butcher knife.

According to the Times Leader,

Nathan Strawn, 22, of Wilkes-Barre, waived misdemeanor charges of indecent exposure, open lewdness and desecration of venerated objects, and summary charges of disorderly conduct and public drunkenness to Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas.

Strawn is expected to file an application to be accepted into the accelerated rehabilitation program, a special probation program, for first-time non-violent offenders. He remains free on $10,000 unsecured bail.

So, Nathan is going to enter into rehab, probation, and is free on $10,000 bail for various misdemeanor charges and urinating on a nativity scene (desecration of venerated objects).


Another article discusses this following incident:

Yoland Holman, 31, was arrested on misdemeanor charges of simple assault, terroristic threats and a summary harassment charge, police said in a news release.

She was jailed at Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $5,000 cash bail.

According to Hanover Township police: Marcus Holman, 32, said his wife, Yoland, attacked him with a pan he had been using to cook breakfast. He said his wife grabbed a butcher knife, put it to his face and chased after him during the course of the argument.

So, this woman was jailed for lack of $5000 bail after attacking her husband with a hot frying pan and putting a knife to his face.


Is something wrong here? Am I missing something? Nathan gets $10,000 bail, probation, and rehab for getting drunk and urinating on a nativity scene while Yoland gets $5000 bail for threatening her husband with a knife and hitting him with a hot frying pan.
