Book Borrower Must Spend Time In Prison

By  | 

Denver (AP) A man accused of checking out hundreds of books and DVDs from libraries around the Denver area and then trying to sell them has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Denver prosecutors say 34-year-old Thomas Pilaar also was ordered Tuesday to pay $53,549 in restitution.

Of an estimated 1,400 books and DVDs that were taken, about 500 have been recovered.

The Denver public library's web site says the library allows each holder of a library card to check out 300 books at a time.
