Scales of justice out of balance

What does it say about our legal system when a multi-convicted robber gets 99 years in prison for stealing a cell phone, but a woman who alternates her daughters in and out of the trunk of a car during an eight-hour car ride will at maximum get 10 years in prison? I think this speaks volumes about the problems in our system, don't you?
