Almost a double copula (or isis)

Чтец читает цитату:

People deserve much less punishment, or even perhaps no punishment, for what they did many years ago as compared to with what they did very recently.

Я удивился избыточному предлогу после as compared; полез проверять. В гуглокнижках — as compared with. В нашедшемся, кажется, источнике цитаты (стр. 345, левый столбец, последний абзац) — as compared with. При этом нагуглился, однако, вариант авторского текста, в котором as compared to with.

Вот и думаю теперь: привнес ли чтец особенность своего языка или честно прочитал какой-то вариант текста, в котором двойной предлог.
