Yolo County prosecutors are dropping their bid for a life sentence for a man who put cheese down his pants at a Woodland market.
A new psychological evaluation convinced prosecutors that Robert Preston Ferguson's most recent convictions for petty theft did not warrant a life sentence under the state's three-strikes law, said Jonathan Raven, Yolo County's assistant chief deputy district attorney.
Raven said the district attorney's office had recently received a psychological report, requested by the public defender's office, that "shed some light on Ferguson."
"The district attorney's office is no longer looking at this as a life case," Raven said.
I think this one pretty much speaks for itself.
