Burglar Asks for Jail Time Because Probation Meetings Interfere With Sleep
In February, Kierran Batchelor was convicted of burglarizing homes in the United Kingdom. His judge saw fit to give him a suspended sentence and probation in lieu of jail time. Well, apparently Batchleor prefers time in the clink to waking up at 10 a.m. to meet with his probation officer.
According to The Daily Mail Online Batchelor said,
I'd rather go to jail and get it out the way, come out and get a fresh start, and not have to do probation and things like that," he told the judge in a conversation transcribed by the Telegraph.
He clarified his position,
I was not finishing work until 6am and had to be at probation at 10am. It wrecked my sleep pattern. I’d rather go to jail and get it out the way, come out and get a fresh start, and not have to do probation and things like that.
All right, I suppose I can respect that. The guy can't work, sleep and do probation, so let's just go to jail -- The guy has got priorities, they're whack, but priorities nonetheless.
