Man fined for serving brother's jail term

2 posts in this topic

BERLIN (Reuters) - An unemployed German who went to jail in place of his brother to beat an alcohol problem has been fined 2,000 euros (1,300 pounds) by a Hamburg court.

"I thought I could use the time inside for some rehab," the 37-year-old man, identified as Norbert K, told the court on Wednesday. He said he volunteered to serve his younger brother Rudolf's jail term for pimping and promoting prostitution.

Norbert said he tricked prison staff by showing his brother's arrest order and identification card. An anonymous tip to police ended the ruse and Rudolf was arrested.
