Two guys hopped a fence and took some overripe fruit from the trash bin area of a grocery store in Steamboat Springs, CO. They were charged with felony second-degree burglary, but pleaded to misdemeanors and were sentenced to six months in jail.
The grocer was outraged - at the sentence, not the theft. But the prosecutor says the men, who were heading to a Rainbow Family of Living Light gathering to make the Earth green again, did the crime and now must do the time.
