TV Thief Out Of N.C. Prison After 35 Years

Junior Allen was a 30-year-old migrant farm worker from Georgia with a criminal history that included burglaries and a violent assault when he sneaked into an unlocked house and stole a 19-inch black-and-white television worth $140.

"We've got an in-house joke here: How much time would he have gotten if he had stolen a color TV?" - Enoch Hasberry, (programs director at Carteret Correctional Center in Newport)

I'm all for punishment, but this does seem rather excessive.
