One rule for the rich...
We all know how true this is, but the how come this millionaire's daughter is pretty much free whilst others have been banged up awaiting trial?
Not to mention the fact that, unless there is a huge public outcry, she is likely to get a slap on the wrist rather than a custodial sentence.

Are you wanting a debate on something we all know happens not only in this country but others or are you you just quantifying what you think everyone is feeling about this case in question?
The answer to the question you have raised (If you are wishing to debate) is what you have already stipulated in your question.................Money!

The case centres around a car she is "alleged" to have been driving containing stolen goods, not being caught red handed looting the store.

Because we live in bizarre society whereby the more you pay for a lawyer, the better chance you have of getting away scot free or with a reduced punishment. Apparently, facts are better the more they cost...

Just feeling (even further) disillusioned.

This applies to just about every profession?

Most people think the law is the law... but it can be interpreted and twisted by a good lawyer so that any discretion the judge has can be turned in their favor.

Yes, but in most other professions it doesn't mean 3 years in jail or a slap on the wrist.
