Beware Quoting the Beatles to a Judge:
The Daily Mail reports on an interesting judicial opinion from Montana. The judge asked Andrew McCormack, a Beatle-loving beer thief, what he thought his sentence should be.
He wrote: "Like the Beetles say, Let It Be". But his cheeky quip did not impress Gregory Todd, a 56-year-old district court judge in Montana.
In a sentencing memorandum Judge Todd first corrected McCormack's misspelling and then gave the defendant a lesson in The Beatles discography.
The judge produced a sentencing memorandum that cited 42 Beatles songs.
