A Trip To The Dentist Leads To A Trip To Prison
The Indiana Supreme Court Court reduced by half a forty year sentence imposed on a defendant who had fallen asleep in a dentist's office (either drunk or drugged) while waiting for an appointment. The police were called after staff was unable to wake him. A weapon was found along with drug paraphernalia.
He was charged and convicted of felon in possession of a firearm and being a habitual offender.
The court found that twenty years was an "adequate response" to the situation. (Mike Frisch)

That was one way to go to your local dentist one way or the other. Lesson learned, don't go to your dentist when your just looking for a place to sleep if your drunk.

Tsk. A moral lesson that can be learned from this case is that we should not leave our valuables unattended. Hehehe. On a serious note, twenty years is enough to teach this guy a lesson. I hope drug addicts learn from him.
