Meet the Beatles ... at sentencing
The judge sentencing a Beatles-loving beer thief quoted 42 of the band's song titles in his verdict. Andrew McCormack, 20, was asked to recommend to a US court what his sentence should be for stealing beer. He wrote: "Like the Beetles say, Let It Be."
But his cheeky quip did not impress Gregory Todd, a 56-year-old district court judge in Montana. In a sentencing memorandum Judge Todd first corrected McCormack's misspelling and then gave the defendant a lesson in The Beatles discography.
