Philobiblos reports today that Karen Churton (from Massey University in NZL) is appealing her 11 month sentence. I think 11 months is very generous for a Rare Books Librarian. She knew the value of the books she stole. And now she says she doesn't know why she stole the books & sold them. The answer is most likely - because she was greedy.
Sentence for books theft 'excessive'
