A Syracuse teen will be locked up for the next two to six years for a robbery that netted him 7 cents, a judge ruled. Onondaga County Judge William Walsh said on Monday that he decided to throw the book at Anthony Stewart, 15, because the teen didn't plead guilty to robbing a 73-year-old man last December. Stewart and a pal, Skyler Ninham, 16, were charged with jumping and robbing the man on Dec. 22. The two were toting BB guns that resembled real pistols when they knocked the victim to the ground, broke his glasses and robbed him of just 7 cents - the only money the man had on him at the time, prosecutors said.

Good! Its not that they “only” got away with seven cents, it’s that they beat an old man in the course of their robbery.
