After 27 years of burglaries, 'North Pond Hermit' is arrested.


Quote:
Christopher Knight, 47, says he stole to survive solitary life in the woods of western Maine.

He built a hut on a slope in the woods, where he spent his days reading books and meditating.

There he lived, re-entering civilization only to steal supplies from camps under the cover of darkness.

During those nearly three decades, he spoke just once to another person – until he was arrested during a burglary last week

Judge sentences man to 53 years, then performs his wedding

Quote:
I hereby sentence you to 53 years in prison. Now, on a lighter note, you may kiss the bride.

Moments after being sentenced to a lengthy prison term, Danne Desbrow, 36, married Destiny Winters, 33. Judge Patricia Cookson presided over both the sentencing and the ceremony, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

The kicker: Judge Cookson baked a Bundt cake for the bride and groom.

Desbrow reconnected with Winters during his trial for the murder of Kevin Santos. Desbrow and Winters had attended high school together but lost touch after Winters became pregnant. During the trial, Desbrow proposed and Winters accepted.

Winters told the paper that she asked Cookson if she would perform the ceremony and was pleasantly surprised when the judge agreed.

Desbrow's attorney, Steve Cline, told the Union-Tribune that the wedding took him completely by surprise.

“I didn’t know it was going to happen,” Cline explained to the Union-Tribune. “Obviously, it was an unusual day from start to finish. I mean, I appreciate that she honored the request for them to marry. But, I’ve never seen anything like that.”

The Union-Tribune writes that following the conclusion of the sentencing, the families of Desbrow and Winters were allowed to stay in the courtroom.

Cookson reportedly performed the ceremony, still dressed in her judicial robes. Desbrow remained shackled at his feet, and sheriff's deputies were on hand to monitor the situation.

Via the San Diego Union-Tribune:

The couple exchanged a lingering kiss. Cookson then went back to her chambers and moments later appeared with two pieces of vanilla Bundt cake, frosted, on paper plates with plastic forks.


A few minutes later, law enforcement escorted Desbrow from the building. The New York Daily News reports that he plans to appeal the sentence.
"...plans to appeal the sentence." Which, the 53 yrs, or the marriage?

I guess the mule shoulda been wearing a seatbelt. Also, how do they know the mule wasn't high? I mean, it is KY.

The plot thickens ...

Pass the mayonnaise, now meat stolen

First it was mayonnaise, now meat has been the target of thieves.

Photo: Steak take: Meat stolen from Whyalla
premises in the early hours (file photo)


Police at Whyalla in South Australia are investigating a theft of steak from a local business.

They say the meaty haul was valued at about $500.

The theft is believed to have happened in the early hours from the premises at Whyalla Norrie.

It follows a puzzling theft of 42 kilograms of mayonnaise in two large tubs from Whyalla premises back in June.

Police do not know if the robberies are related.

Of course they are. Who doesn't love a steak sandwich with a little mayo?
