People have been upset about the pathetically small amount of jail time Felicity Huffman received compared to a homeless Black woman who was handed a five-year sentence just for enrolling her child in a school outside her district.

But singer John Legend took to social media to urge people to resist being angry over the disparity of Huffman being handed a 14-day privileged sentence, saying that the focus should be on prison reform and lessening the amount of time all non-violent offenders should receive, The NY Daily News reports.

“I get why everyone gets mad when rich person X gets a short sentence and poor person of color Y gets a long one,” Legend began. “The answer isn’t for X to get more; it’s for both of them to get less (or even none!!!) We should level down not up.”

Huffman was sentence last Friday for her role in a college admission scandal and paid to get her daughter’s test scores tweaked so she could gain favorable entrance into college.

But many critics are sharing the story of a Connecticut woman named Tanya McDowell, who sentenced to five years in 2012 on felony charges of committing and attempting to commit first-degree larceny in connection with enrolling her child in a school in the neighborhood of her babysitter. The woman was homeless at the time.

Legend also made mention of the disparity in sentencing involving Crystal Mason, a woman in Texas who was also sentenced to five years for voting when she didn’t know she was not eligible because was was previously convicted of tax fraud.

The McDowell case even caught the attention of  Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who retweeted a thread comparing Huffman and McDowell’s punishments.

“We have a criminal justice system which is racist, broken, and must be fundamentally reformed,” he tweeted.

“It’s insane we locked a woman up for 5 years for sending her kid to the wrong school district,” Legend tweeted. “Literally everyone involved in that decision should be ashamed of themselves.”
