Hard Drink May Get Woman Hard Time

From The Huffington Post:
Police in Boise arrested 35-year-old Victoria Hill for allegedly shoplifting a single can of Steel Reserve lager from a grocery on Aug. 11 and charged her with felony burglary, a count that carries a hefty prison sentence of as long as 10 years, The Idaho Statesman reports.

...If found guilty of felony burglary charges for the $1.50 beverage, Hill could be sentenced to no less than one year in prison and a maximum of 10 years, according to the news agency.
Imagine if she had tried to steal a good beer? No one should be given 10 years in prison for stealing one beer. They should, however, be given 10 years in prison for having such horrible taste in beer.
