    How refreshing to see a reasonable judge applying a benefit figure based on what the defendant had factually personally received as a result of the alleged crime, rather than some fictitious figure conjured up by the prosecution for publicity.
    This should pave the way for confiscation appeals where judges have simply gone along with unreasonable prosecutors.
