We’ve been talking about it, so I’m not going to rehash the details. Crazy dude (allegedly, gah, I hate that I have to say allegedly) steals First Folio, mutilates it, then has the cajones to walk back into Folger and say “Hey, I found this, is it worth anything?”
His trial’s been going on for awhile, and finally he’s convicted … not of stealing it, or mutilating it, but merely of “handling stolen goods.” WTF? Is that really how the system works over there, the only evidence you had to work with was the fact that the bloody thing was in his hands, so you get to charge him with handling it? He didn’t even offer any words in his own defense, and now I think I understand why. He didn’t need to. Geez.
He hasn’t been sentenced yet, so what’s your guess at what he gets? I recommend 375 years. That’s how many years of stolen history he was handling.
