Note to future criminals: when the judge hands you a sentence, never, ever, never, ever, never ask for more years.
5/15/11 in NBA
Meet Eric Torpy, who was sentenced to 30 years in prison in 2005 for armed robbery and two counts of shooting with intent to kill. Torpy is a huge Larry Bird fan and he actually asked the judge to add on 3 years to the sentence, in honor of the number Bird wore in the NBA. The judge was happy to oblige but now it seems Torpy is regretting the decision.
