So this is an actual headline:

425-Pound, Arm-Sniffing Man Gets 32 Months For Annoying Boy, 10

And it goes to an actual story:

A 56-year-old man, accused of grabbing a 10-year-old boy and sniffing his arm, was sentenced to 32 months in prison Thursday after pleading guilty.

Victor Joseph Espinoza of Santa Ana, pleaded guilty to a false imprisonment charge. His rap sheet includes a conviction as a gang member.

In exchange for his guilty plea, charges of street terrorism and a sentencing enhancement for gang activity were dismissed.

The boy and his 19-year-old cousin were walking to the boy’s soccer practice on a bike trail by Delhi Park about 7:20 p.m., Oct. 4.

Espinoza first asked the youngster if he wanted to see the defendant’s gang tattoo, according to prosecutors.

The 425-pound suspect grabbed the boy and sniffed his arm, but the child managed to get loose.


And this is the actual felon:


I know that’s one scary-looking dude with a rap sheet already who did a creepy thing, but doesn’t nearly three years seem a little excessive?
