Another Scream Sentence

The New York Times: "A man who admitted his role in the theft of the Edvard Munch painting 'The Scream' was sentenced Monday to two and a half years in prison by a court in Oslo .... The man, Bjoern Hoen, 41, had been found guilty by a Norwegian appeals court of providing the getaway vehicle that was used in the daytime heist. ... Last year, Norway’s Supreme Court sentenced one thief, Stian Skjold, to six years in jail and the getaway driver, Petter Tharaldsen, to 10 years and 6 months."
