A big reason people are not even charged with what they should be is District Attorneys in America are voted in by people and only serve a few years and then have to win re-election. To get re-elected they need to show a high conviction percentage as proof that tax dollars money is not being wasted such as the Roger Clemons prosecution. To secure a conviction they often seek mild charges as they are easier to win.
