Default Smoker Takes Longer Sentece...

Smoker opts for longer prison term
Canadian couldn't handle smoke-free jail
Updated: 1:50 p.m. ET March 02, 2004WINNIPEG, Manitoba - For a 73-year-old Canadian man, 20 months in a smoke-free jail looked just too long, so instead he took 24 months in a prison where he can smoke cigarettes.

Angelo Foti was sentenced to 20 months for shooting and wounding a man in his backyard who was trying to repossess a snowmobile sold to Foti’s son, the Winnipeg Free Press reported on Tuesday.

In court on Monday, Angelo Foti was agitated when he realized the sentence would mean he would be in a provincial jail, where smoking is banned, the newspaper said.

Foti’s lawyer pleaded for a 24-month sentence instead, which means the man will go to a federal prison, where smoking is allowed.

In accepting the longer term, Foti, a dedicated pack-a-day man, ignored the wishes of this family.

“Dad, they’re just cigarettes -- give them up. Quit smoking: you’ll be healthier,” his son Angelo Jr. said in court. “Just take the 20 months.”





This is very sad. I would take 20 months. But smokers are addicted, and it may be really hard.


your thoughts?

wow.....that's dedication to an addiction.....

I suppose that, since he is 73 years old, the man doesn't want to listen to the speeches about cigarettes being hazardous to his health.....and he has decided that 20 months without smoking would be more of a sentence than 24 months with it.....

knowing the power an addiction can hold over someone, the four month difference probably wouldn't be enough to sway very many people.....it would have been interesting to see what his response would have been if the difference was more like a year.....

What good is prison without cigerettes? Maybe the old man didn't want to become some dudes bitch and figured it'd be smarter to buy his way up the ladder with prison currency; smokes!

but at his age, what difference would 4 months make, even if he gets out early for good behaivor or something. And why do you have to go to prison for longer if it's a smoking one? Aren't sentences determined before you're sent off? Strange laws in Canada...

Yeah...I don't see how it makes a difference...Being a Heavy smoker and all at his age...my guess is He dosen't have a lot of time left anyways...So why not take the only 4 month longer sentence..and still be able to have your addiction?

He preferred a maximun securit prison rather than a provincial low security.

Hmmm... I'm assuming this guy also claims he doesn't have a nicotine addiction?
