Man gets 70 years after stealing tuna sandwich

Wednesday, 20 October, 2010

Have you seen this Austin?  From the York Daily Record:

AUSTIN, Texas—A prosecutor says that a man who attacked a security officer at an Austin grocery store with a knife after stealing a tuna sandwich has been sentenced to 70 years in prison.

That’s right….years!  Not days.  Not hours.  Years.  Well, almost.  The perpetrator also attacked a store associate with a knife and has been in the slammer before in Texas and Louisiana.  But it really makes you wonder as to the quality and flavor of that tuna sandwich.  I wish we knew more about it.  What kind of bread was it on?  Were there any other fixin’s?  Six inch or foot long?  Regardless, many thanks to the Associated Press for a fine piece of reporting, and to YDR for passing it along.  In case you missed it, here’s the full length.
