SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A judge made sure the punishment fit the crime when he sentenced a man to clean 100 toilets at the Saginaw County Jail.
Jonathan F. Naessens, 23, pleaded guilty to stealing a firearm from a Richland Township home, but investigators also found human feces in the basement near the window where the burglar entered the house. Authorities say Naessens soiled the floor.
In addition to the toilet scrubbing, Circuit Judge Fred L. Borchard on Wednesday sentenced Naessens to two years' probation and to pay $389 in restitution to clean the property.
"The sentence is excellent," Sheriff Charles L. Brown said. "What's more disgusting than someone coming into your home and doing this?"
