Michel Lapointe Knows Where The Beef Is... More Importantly, He Knows That Beef Can Buy You An Early Release!
For some folks, weight has always been a problem. But for some, being overweight can translate into preferential treatment. Michel Lapointe may fit that category. He weights 430-pounds. He was serving time in a Canadian prison but was released early because the facility could not accommodate his massive frame.
The Quebec Parole Board sided with Michel's claims that he just did not fit in the prison scene. Given his good behavior and what could be legitimate health concerns, Michel received early parole. "Big Mike," as he's known, was in the joint for conspiracy and drug trafficking. Rumor has it he celebrated his early release by a great meal.
For the next few days Legal Pub will be catching up on new law for 2009. So don't expect a new post for a few days.
