Inmate Pleads To Stay In Jail

Just another sign we need to get tougher on criminals. I mean, when they are asking to stay IN jail, we know there is something wrong.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Most inmates can't wait to get out of a stir. But not David Byers.He's dying to stay in a Virginia regional jail. He requested an extended sentence so he could finish a cooking course.His fellow inmates think he's nuts. And a jail doctor jokingly asked Byers if he wanted to see a shrink.Byers was allowed to stay past his Oct. 5 release date and was able to graduate with the rest of the inmate cooking class. He said the course was important to him and he's looking forward to putting his new culinary skills to work on the outside.
