    Katrina looters get 15 years in prison

    KENNER, Louisiana (AP) -- Three people convicted of hauling away liquor, wine and beer from a grocery store after Hurricane Katrina were sentenced Wednesday to 15 years in prison.

    The judge said he wanted to send a message that looting would not be tolerated when he gave the maximum sentence to Coralnelle Little, 36, Rhonda McGowen, 42, and Paul C. Pearson, 36, all of Kenner.

    A jury convicted the trio May 2 on a portion of the state's looting law that took effect two weeks before the Aug. 29 storm. The amended law set a three-year minimum sentence, and a maximum of 15 years in prison, for looting during a declared state of emergency.

    They were convicted of attempting to leave the grocery with 27 bottles of liquor and wine, six cases of beer and one case of wine coolers, six days after Katrina made landfall.

    Little, McGowen and Pearson each testified that they were not looting, but they offered conflicting accounts of matters such as who drove to the store.

    Pearson's attorney, Bruce Netterville, said the sentence and conviction would be appealed.

    "We believe the sentence is excessive," said Netterville.

    Attorneys for the other defendants agreed.

    No doubt. They have mugshots of thousands of people on int'l television stealing stuff. I can understand taking some survival stuff like food and drink if you need some. People were walking off with flat screen TVs, entertainment centers, etc. Prosecute those folks to the full extent of the law.

    15 years is a little steep for beer/wine. I want to know what the ones that cleaned out jewelry strores of tens of thousands of dollars of merchandice will get. and how about the ones that stole guns. Go get the bigtime crooks.

    Well alchol I believe is under Federal control (BATF)
    So I think there may be manditory guidlines for a prison term.
    I am sure Cajun will know better.

    Why should it get locked? I think that BOTH sides of the aisle would agree that looting stuff is wrong...even the independents like me can agree with that!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
