In 2006, Christopher Brown was arrested and convicted of breaking into cars and stealing credit cards. Less than a year later, he was caught stealing again.

Brown initially admitting to committing the crime, saying it was because of his drug addiction. A judge put Brown on a 5 year probation, with the stipulation that he must pay $2,500 to his victims and complete a drug rehab program.

Brown did neither of those things. In fact, during the three months he was free, the commonwealth attorney says he went right back to stealing credit cards from cars while people were either shopping or working out.

Brown has been sent back to prison for 25 years for his crimes but he'll be eligible for parole in less than 4 years.

As for Brown's victims, he will not be required to pay them back as long as he is in prison.

    That's OK. He can keep my credit card. Just let him serve the full 25 years in exchange. If he gets out in 4 yrs I will be peeved!

    Another slap on the wrist, why change they got it made? life of crime is easier then working everyday to make pennies only to be stolen from a lowlife, they got it better then the working man who lives paycheck to paycheck.

    He should be executed. People like this don't deserve to breathe. They are a menace, and we should definitely not be wasting valuable tax dollars on incarcerating people like him. We should instead be using the money to take care of our elderly and handicapped and revitalizing social security. I bet if people like him knew a death sentence awaited them we would no longer have these types of crimes.
