COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -
A man was found guilty of mischief and faces up to ten years in prison after he has indicated he wants to return to incarceration.
Lance Brown, 36, threw a brick through the front glass doors of the United States Post Office and Federal Court Building located at 12th Street last July.
According to the report, Brown wanted to go back to prison, where he had recently completed a term for bank robbery out of North Carolina.
He claimed that he was homeless and hungry and thought that being taken into federal custody was better than spending another night sleeping outside.
"The unfortunate circumstances in which Mr. Brown found himself cannot be a justification for destroying property of the United States," says U.S. Attorney Michael Moore. "While I am personally saddened by Mr. Brown's plight, I regret that he chose to violate the law instead of taking help from those who offered it."
Sentencing has been set for May 1, where Brown faces up to ten years and a $250,000 fine.
