How to punish a man who illegally killed hundreds of deer

A man who illegally killed hundreds of deer has been ordered by a judge to watch Disney’s Bambi once a month during the year he spends in jail. The judge in Missouri (Lawrence County) handed the penalty to David Berry Jr., who was sentenced in early December in what may be the state’s largest poaching case ever. Berry’s defense attorneys had argued for leniency in sentencing because their client had recently had a baby, but the judge responded instead with the legal obligation to watch the movie. The judge said, “You can watch Bambi and think about your own child when you do that.” Berry must view the 1942 Disney movie before December 23 and every subsequent month thereafter.
