Pa. man gets 5 to 15 years in prison for $36 robbery



Published: Wed, December 19, 2012 @ 2:40 p.m.

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 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.
