    The penalty is up to six months in jail and a $1,000 (£620) fine.

That's a bit low for potentially ruining someone.

There's some jail time included (six months), so It's possible that that will deter people from doing it (or at least prompt them to cover their tracks)

I agree it's a disincentive, but it the "or at least prompt them to cover their tracks" that concerns me.

Sounds more like a business expense than a fine.
