Fat Prisoner Released from Prison Early — Too Big for Cell

Prisoner Michel Lapointe, being held in a prison in Ottawa, Canada, has been released early from his sentence because he was too fat for his cell. Lapointe, or Big Mike, ways 250 kilos (450 pounds).

Overall, Lapointe served two years of his five year sentence. His release stated that: “You have been detained for more than 25 months and your prison conditions are difficult because of your health”. Two other facilities refused to take him.

Lapointe, 37, said: “I’m going to have a proper bed and finally have a chair I can sit in. I want a normal life. I’ve done some stupid things and I’ve paid for them.”

——-My Personal Opinion——-

I think it’s safe to say that Lapointe basically ate his way out of person. What-the-hell! Put him on a strict diet and some ‘hard labor’ wouldn’t hurt. I’m curious to know how our prison service here in Dominica would handle a situation like this. 👿
