    Not a chance, MR confirmed the two committed the crime as charged. May be MR can volunteer to take their place in the prison.

    The forty thieves of Ali Baba robbed for their master knowing absolutely well that it was a crime. Does it mean each time one of those thieves is caught, he is released because they did it for their Master? Absurd logic.
