A bit more from Jumbo Foundation

<<Jumbo Foundation salutes Judge Christine Snyder for her landmark judgment with regard to 2 Californian businessmen who were trafficking in rhino horn. In addition to the jail time of 42 and 46 months respectively , the individual fines of $20,000 each and the fines to the company of $100,000 and $185,000 she ordered that the seized assets of the company valued at $800,000 be donated to the Multinational species conservation fund.>>

In the end, will the fines and jail time really be as indicated?

Sure hope so as to me these can't be high enough or long enough!
