Letter: Black deserved jail time for embezzling from UB

I was both surprised and disappointed that convicted felon Dennis Black was spared jail time by State Supreme Court Justice John L. Michalski.

I echo the district attorney’s sentiments that he is walking free with little more than a “slap on the wrist.” I know that he and his family must now live with the humiliation, and many feel that is punishment enough.

But wouldn’t justice be better served if Black spent some time behind bars so he would have a better insight and understanding of what incarceration is like when a crime of this magnitude is committed? What makes stealing $320,000 from the University at Buffalo more disturbing is that we, as taxpayers and alumni, will be funding his pension.
