A Penny Earned

|

A British court sentenced Tabrez Khan to six-and-a-half years in prison after he admitted dealing drugs. But that wasn't punishment enough for the police. They took him back to court to seize all his assets. Total value of those assets? About 53 cents American. "We are determined that no one should benefit from crime and although 29 pence may seem minuscule, it sends out a message that the courts will strip such people of every asset that can be found even if it is a few pence," said a police spokesman.
