Brush With Prison

This morning I read that the man who was arrested for plotting to kidnap David Letterman’s child, along with the nanny, has escaped from prison.

There’s a paragraph in the story that should act as a stark warning to any house painter from Montana with a penchant for overbilling:

Frank was arrested in an alleged 2005 plot to abduct CBS Late Show host David Letterman’s son and the child’s nanny in Teton County. That charge was later dismissed and Frank was sentenced to 10 years in state prison on a lesser charge for overcharging the talk show host for painting work at his ranch.

A plot to kidnap is dismissed, but the guy gets 10 years for charging too much for painting work? Somewhere there are some lawmakers in Montana who were, at some point, really screwed over by a handyman.
