Its Called Prosecutorial Discretion and Separation of Powers

“Federal judges in Washington are questioning whether rioters who have admitted to storming the Capitol on Jan. 6 are being treated too leniently. Judges are asking prosecutors why defendants aren’t paying more to cover the cost of damage to the Capitol, why the court can’t order additional supervision of many defendants beyond a brief prison term and why more do not face heftier charges.”

If you want to sow distrust in the judiciary, its impartiality and the fairness of the process, this is a good way to do it.
