Soft on crime much? E-mail

“I wouldn’t exactly call that ‘throwing the book at him’ your honor.” According to a report from the Associated Press, a man charged in an undercover sting operation in Northern California that ended in gunfire has been ordered released on bond. But there’s a catch. The guy that shot at law enforcement officers must read books and submit book reports.

U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers gave 23-year-old Otis Mobley parole and delayed an order to allow prosecutors to appeal her decision.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that under the bond order, Mobley would be required to spend an hour reading and a half-hour writing each day as he awaits trial.

Mobley and two others are accused of arranging to sell a grenade launcher for $1,000 to an undercover federal agent in Richmond, California.
