(AllHipHop News) Of all the excuses an escaped prisoner could give to why he broke out of prison, having to listen to rap music while locked up may go down as one of the most outrageous.
British inmate Robert Stevens was at large for 20 days before being caught. His attorney later explained to a judge that loud rap music was being played “day and night” in his prison wing, and he escaped to avoid the noise. Stevens also claimed other inmates were constantly attempting to sell him drugs.
Stevens was originally sentenced to six and half years for robbery. His premature freedom led to the judge adding another ten months to his sentence.
“The reason for your escape has been explained to me as your unhappiness at people who were with you in prison,” the judge told Stevens. “I’m afraid that’s one of the prices people pay if they commit crimes and go to prison.”
