I could see a 30 day jail sentence as reasonable but five years? Waaaay over the top and not beneficial to anyone.
30 days? A huge waste of manpower and a totally not insignificant chance that the SWAT team shoots someone in the raided place. Throw him away for life. He's 33 years old, it's not like a little kid did it.
5 years is a pretty long time. Seems appropriate in this case. I could certainly see a much longer sentence if someone had been killed or injured.
