MEADVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Crime may sometimes pay, but a northwestern Pennsylvania man has found out it doesn't pay much.
At best, 32-year-old Billy Joe Rash will have earned $7.20 for each year he must spend in prison — and that's only if he's paroled after serving the minimum of his five- to 15-year prison sentence for a $36 robbery on Sept. 4.
That's when the Conneaut Lake man robbed a woman in a restaurant parking lot.
If Rash serves the maximum sentence, he'll have netted just $2.40 for each year he spends in prison.
Adding insult to injury, the Meadville Tribune reports Rash will spend an additional one to five years in prison for an unrelated drunken driving conviction. That puts his total sentence at six to 20 years.
