You'll never know the answer if you don't ask

Robber wants shorter jail term due to dollar exchange rate
A Canadian bank robber in a US prison wants his sentence reduced because his country's dollar is worth less than the US currency.
�Moisescu wrote to the judge: "Taking into account my Canadian criminal record - at current exchange rates - is only worth 62% of an American criminal, I thought I had a good chance at a reduced sentence."

No, you have the exchange rate backwards. You're a Canadian trying to steal American money. Instead of reducing your sentence from seven years to four, we should be extending it to 11.3.
