The Lowest of Crimes - Gets Three Years

According to a press release here of the US Attorneys Office for the Western District of Washington, an individual was sentenced to three years in prison and three years supervised release for the following conduct:

"According to court filings, for more than 20 years [  ] assumed hundreds of false identities, many from deceased children, to write bad checks. Investigations had been opened concerning his check kiting scheme in Washington, Oregon, and New Mexico. [   ] used counterfeit or otherwise falsely obtained birth certificates to obtain IDs such as drivers licenses. [   ] traveled the west obtaining identification documents and writing bad checks in Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, North Carolina, and Montana. Prosecutors say they have been able to identify more than $183,000 in bad checks – and that represents just a portion of the fraud over the last 20 years."

Is this sentence proportional to what was initially given to Jamie Olis?
