iPhone Theft Suspects Plead No-Contest

They should have thrown the book at these hardened criminals. A year probation? What is to stop these guys from stealing stuff like lost children or misplaced trade secrets? Steve is probably spinning in his grave.

Two men pleaded no contest today to theft of lost property in a case involving last year's iPhone 4 prototype, which Apple claimed was so valuable that a price could not be placed on it. The men, who were accused of selling the device to gadget blog Gizmodo last year, were sentenced to one year of probation, 40 hours of public service, and a requirement that each pay $250 in restitution to Apple.
