Life sentence for shoplifter
A Mississippi man and repeat offender was given a life sentence after he was caught shoplifting, according to this report:
After being arrested for trying to cash in his five-finger discount at Kohl's, local police in Mississippi ran the man's name through the system and came up with a bonanza of a rap sheet from his days in Tennessee: 18 arrests, 10 convictions (4 felony convictions; 6 prior felonies reduced to misdemeanors).
The wannabe thief was convicted of three felonies and given a mandatory life sentence, as per Mississippi state law.
