Abstract Even after stealing millions from innocent victims or bilking charities, first-time non-violent offenders are eligible for parole after serving as little as one-sixth of their sentence in Canada. Free to go with what some see as a slap on the wrist, some crooks and cons are released and at risk to re-offend without being required to pay restitution to their victims. CBC reporter Hana Gartner takes a look at the cons and crimes of two fraudsters and reveals what's become of them since they were locked up.
