Cameron Collins gets probation – and his father gets all the blame – The Buffalo News

In making the decision to put Cameron Collins on probation and not behind bars, the judge found a precedent not in a law book, but in a much older book.

“I decline to adhere to the idiom that the sins of the father are visited upon the son,” Broderick said, paraphrasing a passage from the Book of Exodus in the Bible as he sentenced Cameron Collins to five years of probation – including six months of home confinement – for conspiracy to commit securities fraud. Cameron Collins will also have to pay a $150,000 fine and do 500 hours of community service.
