Sleeping with a Pig

Grand Junction, Colorado USA

A Grand Junction man has been ordered to spend 24 years in prison for possessing a bronze pig statue taken from the city's main street.

Forty two year old Daniel Vigil learned his sentence Monday in Mesa County District Court. A jury convicted Mr Vigil in January on one felony count of theft by receiving. The pig statue was found in a stolen trunk in which Mr Vigil was living, last April. Mesa County District Judge Valerie Robinson said that the conviction was Mr Vigil's fourth on felony charges, and she declared him a habitual offender.
