Quebec convict released from jail for being too fat
TORONTO (Reuters) - A 430-pound (195 kg) convict was released early from a Quebec prison because his jailers could not accommodate his enormous frame.
Michel Lapointe, who served more than two years in jail on drug charges, was released Tuesday -- three months early, Canadian news broadcaster CTV said.
The decision was made in May by a Quebec judge after prison officials said they were unable to find Lapointe a chair or table large enough to fit him.
Lapointe described his time in prison as "a living hell," CTV said.
