Man Who Robbed Bank to Get Away From Wife Sentenced....

I remember reading this story about this crazy 71 year old man who said he robbed a Kansas city bank so he could get away from his wife has been sentenced.

 A federal judge on Tuesday sentenced Lawrence John Ripple to six months of home confinement and 50 hours of community service. Ripple went to the Bank of Labor a block from the Kansas City, Kansas, police headquarters — and gave a note to a teller saying he had a gun and demanding money.

After he was given the money, Ripple waited for police. Court records said Ripple wrote the robbery note in front of his wife and told her he would rather be in jail than at home.

Well your plan didn't work out boss. Enjoy home life with the wife!! All I know is that this judge has a great sense of humor!! - Chubbs
