Stolen Valor

From Fox News this morning, we get this heart-warming tale of a guy who lied to the court about his military service.
A Pennsylvania man who pretended to be a decorated ex-Marine sniper so he'd receive less time for theft and weapons crimes is now getting more prison time.
Lying about your service is never a good idea, but lyinng to a Court might be the worst possible idea.
 Shane Sperow, 43, was sentenced Tuesday to 21 months to five years in state prison, beyond the six to 23 months he's serving for a simple assault conviction, The Reading Eagle reported.
Evidently, the Court didn't believe his story, and had it double-checked.
 Sperow received three months to two years in prison for lying about his military record, and 18 months to three years in prison for the other crimes. He will spend a total of 21 months to five years in state prison, according to the report.
Heh!  Good for him.
