Randall Hubatch, a Wisconsin law school graduate who held up a Madison bank with a toy Star Wars gun while wearing a Bucky Badger furry hat, will be spending two years in jail.
The 50 year old didn’t seem to mind the sentence, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Hubatch had told authorities he wanted prison time because he has $250,000 in student loan debt after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison law school.
The Wisconsin State Journal says that Hubatch planned the robbery to be an easy way to jail, hence the Bucky hat and the toy gun. It was either jail or be homeless, Hubatch told the court.
“I think I will always remember this case as really the saddest I’ve ever been involved in,” said (Dennis) Burke, who has been a lawyer since 1972.
