Now that is different.....threatening a person with a gun in the tax line so that you can get farther up in the line.   I wonder if tax evasion carries the same penalty as threatening a person with an unlicensed gun which he had in possession.  I am sure that after his father the judge spanks him hard he will explain that to him.

Someone who is charged with a crime that carries an 8 to 10 year sentence is being released on house arrest with no cash bail?

That's crazy. Corruption rules.
