truffles and trespassers

Bits of law:
-- PARIS (AP) -- A court in southeast France has sentenced a farmer to eight years in prison for the shooting death of a suspected truffle thief.... Truffles sell for up to $1,000 per kilogram (2.2 pounds).
-- RENO, Nev. (AP) — Accused of murder for confronting two unarmed trespassers with a deadly barrage of gunfire, Wayne Burgarello walked out of a Nevada courthouse a free man after the jury found him not guilty of all charges in the latest of a series of cases nationally testing the boundaries of stand-your-ground self-defense laws.
