Want a doughnut? 52 cents, or 30 years in jail.

For those of you who think punishments are too severe, here's one to sink your teeth into:

Man faces 30-year prison term for stealing doughnut


Farmington, MO (AP) -- A Park Hills man could potentially pay a hefty price to satisfy his sweet tooth.

Scott Masters has been charged with felony second-degree robbery.

He is accused of slipping a 52-cent doughnut into his sweat shirt without paying last December and then pushing away a clerk who tried to stop him.

The push is being treated as minor assault, which transforms a misdemeanor shoplifting charge to a strong armed robbery with a potential prison term of five to 15 years. Given Masters' criminal past, prosecutors could boost that sentence to 30 years to life.

The 41-year-old Masters has been arrested more than a dozen times for crimes ranging from shoplifting to drug possession to torching a car for insurance fraud.

While part of me finds that too stupid to be true (and hence, a crazy punishment given the offense), part of me thinks he's too stupid to ever shape up and should never see the light of day again. :-b

That must have been one heck of a push he gave the clerk for it to be "strong armed robbery" :-o I thought armed robbery involved an arm of some kind. :-? Unless his actual arm is the arm, in that case that's whacked.

Hope the doughnut was worth it.

Normally i would be like "that's harsh," but this guy does not sound like a useful member of society.

Even if that's what you think of him, 30 years is still way too extreme.

he should be forced to eat donuts for the term of his sentence. which should realistically only be at most 90 days.
