Services rendered?

I saw a blip this morning about that kidnapper who is going to court today. He had one boy for a number of years, IIRC. I was wondering what he will get for the crime.

Then I got to thinking about people who have been imprisoned by the state and eventually set free with a large compensation. But, the greedy bastards will take a portion of the money for room and board.

Following this mentality, the kidnapper should get time off his sentence because he fed and clothed the boy. So, the longer he kept the boy, the more severe the crime, yet more leniency should be shown?

fyi: I think big payouts, or even any payments at all, are fairly rare. Most of the innocent who have been unfairly incarcerated are frequently released without even the benefit of an apology. NPR has profiled several of these folks' stories of post-release, and they're infuriatingly heart-breaking.
