Maple Syrup Theft Could Carry Life Sentence


BRATTLEBORO, Vt.(AP) -- Life could get a lot less sweet for a Putney, Vermont man whose conviction in the sale of stolen maple syrup makes him eligible for life in prison as a habitual offender.

A jury agreed with prosecutors that 52-year-old Stephen Bain sold more than 75 gallons of syrup to a New Hampshire wholesaler just hours after it was discovered missing from the Dwight Miller Orchards in Dummerston in May of 2003.

In addition to the charge of possession of stolen property, Bain was found guilty of felony possession of marijuana, in connection with pot found at his home during a search by sheriff's deputies.

The charges normally could bring up to 13 years in prison. But someone can be declared a habitual offender after three prior felony convictions, and Bain had six. No date for his sentencing
has been set.

75 gallons? Isn't that enough to get him declared a dealer?
