Stole bottle of wine — gets seven years
After pleading guilty to stealing a bottle of wine, Robert Grook, 72, of no fixed address, was yesterday sentenced by the chairman of a London court to 7 years of confinement.
The prosecutor said it was obvious that Grook broke a window with the intention of being arrested. He said the prisoner had not eaten for a week.
Police said that Grook had 57 previous convictions, and when he broke the window he had been out of prison for only six days.
