If the punishment fit the crime

Wouldn't he be let go immediately?

(ANSA) - Rome, November 3 - An Italian man has been convicted of escaping justice for leaving house arrest to return to jail.

The young drugs offender from the Abruzzo region left a treatment community earlier this year and turned up at Rome's Rebibbia prison the next day, saying he preferred jail to his new companions.

Italy's highest appeals court, the Court of Cassation, on Friday fined him 1,000 euros and added two months to his sentence .
