I believe he should have gotten more time than he did, along with his wife. They shouldnt have done the crime, if they didn't plan to do the time. I believe they got off lightly.

Two years for the crime, or maybe even less!

10 years for screwing the residents of the City of Schenectady, stabbing them in the back with this highly arrogant action / behavior ...

I love how our legal system has invisible rules for people in power, they never get the kind of sentences you would expect for committing crimes regular people would get put away for a long time if they committed them

After the lies, deception and deplorable lack of leadership he showed to Officer Marhaffer and the city of Schenectady, Kaczmarek should rot in jail for the rest of his pathetic, useless life. Unfortunately, he will be out on the streets in less than 2 years. The Marhaffer family will never have their son back. He should stay in jail with the scumbags he was hired to protect us from.
