Many are missing the point.

He wasn't sentenced for stealing £5. He was involved in a group of people aiming to take out a huge chunk of money, not just from Camelot but others. The "others" have already been convicted and sentenced for the same crime, regardless of the amount they stole.

Here is it a bit clear of an explanation.
