Man who robbed bank to get away from wife sentenced to home confinement

Would you rather go to jail than spend another minute with your spouse?

That's the choice a man from Kansas made, and he chose poorly.

Lawrence John Ripple was tired of fighting with his wife. So he robbed a bank, then waited calmly for the police to arrest him, and take him to jail -- away from his wife.

He even handed the teller a note saying he'd rather be in jail than at home.

But it backfired on him. A judge sentenced him to six months of home confinement.
