How much time in prison -- if any -- should a defendant receive if he knows some ceiling tiles contain some asbestos but has a work crew scrape the ceilings wearing white masks instead of respirators (i.e., treats the job as containing no asbestos)?
The sentencing guidelines say: "Around a decade in prison." After some downward departures, the district court gives the defendant four years.
Overly harsh? Overly lenient? Just about right?
