## jailed up to 10 years, or both (fined and jailed.)

If convicted, Peh could be fined up to \$100 000 or jailed up to 10 years, or both fined and jailed.

Would it be better if the part in bold is left out?

Thanks.

No. It can be left out, but leaving it makes the point very clear. In speech, the 'and' would probably be stressed to hammer home the point even more.

As 5jj said, it can be left out.

Put me down as one who would leave it out; it's clear enough to me already.

(Note the correct way to write \$100,000.)

Hi Rover,

With due respect to you, I believe the leaving a space between the zeros is another way of writing one hundred thousand dollars in figures.This was what I was taught in school. When I was younger I was taught to use a comma as indicated by you. Or was I taught wrongly by my second maths teacher?.

Thanks.

I'd bet on the latter.
Wouldn't it be better to follow the traditions of your native British English?
