Woodland cheese shoplifter gets 7 years 8 months in prison

A Yolo County judge on Monday sentenced a man who walked out of a store with a package of cheese in his trousers to seven years and eight months in prison.
You read that and you say WOW.
Read a little further down and you find out that the shoplifter, Robert Ferguson was a career criminal who wouldn't change. He had 13 prior convictions and had spent 22 of the past 27 years behind bars, yet still would not obey the law, the prosecutor said.
He got his 7 years for being a career criminal.
