Words of Comfort: $25 a week.

On the West Coast of New Zealand, Jacqueline Anne Galland found herself in court because she had skipped out on paying over $2,000 in back rent. She had left so much trash it cost the property owner $1000 to clean it up. She told the judge that she could only afford to pay the landlord $2 per week. It was then that Judge Saunders asked her if she had purchased any tobacco recently. She said she hadn't. To which the judge said that she had actually purchased $62 worth of tobacco, adding, "Your son has a bald head and has a passion for cars, because he also bought a car magazine." He had been standing right behind her in the supermarket line. He gave her 180 hours of community work and ordered that $25 a week go to the former landlord until the $2000 was repaid.
