White collar criminals

A thought:

Why do some white collar criminals get sentenced to more than 100 years behind bars, while rapists sometimes get mere months in prison? I know that the most aggravating of white collar criminals conned people out of millions of dollars, and I'm not saying their sentences should necessarily be reduced. But isn't raping someone worth more than a few months and some community service? People who bring white collar criminals to court have enough money to hire the big-shot, celebrity-status lawyers, while the people that are most often victims of rape or attempted murder don't have that luxury and end up with, arguably, a comparably weak version of justice.
