Never Steal Anything Small

Just last month, Keonna Yantize Williams pleaded guilty to theft of property and forgery, both class B felonies, under a plea agreement that got him 10 years in prison for his role in using forged checks to purchase a cops-and-robbers.jpgSony Playstation 3 and a laptop at the Pleasant Grove Wal-Mart Supercenter in Rogers. Circuit Judge Tom Keith required him to pay $1,420 in court costs and gave him credit for the 156 days he spent in the Benton County Jail awaiting trial.

Tom Coughlin, the millionaire business leader who stole some $400,000 from Wal-Mart, didn’t have to spend a single day in jail, but he has to go to fancy fundraising parties at Quail Unlimited to do community service for his crimes.
