"Lawyers for the men have said they did not realize the painting was famous when they took it"

The two guys who stole a Goya painting while it was on its way to the Guggenheim from the Toledo Museum of Art in 2006 were sentenced to federal prison yesterday. The ringleader (who also "had an extensive criminal record") got five years; his accomplice got a year and a day.
