Police Arrest Man Accused Of Stealing Consoles From Kids With Cancer

Earlier this month, a man broke into a hospital and stole consoles that were used by kids with cancer. Good news, everyone: police say they've caught the guy.

Charles Everett Hinton has been arrested by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, and charged with burglary, larceny after burglary, and damage to property. He stands accused of breaking into the Levine Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Center and stealing five video game consoles.

If found guilty, Hinton - who is also a convicted sex offender - is going to have a fun time in prison explaining why he's in there.

Damn, he's doing the rest of his natural life in prison.

Blacktric2647d ago (Edited 2647d ago )

Oh he's gonna drop it. A lot.

I bet the guy didn't know the kids had cancer, when the cops told him he was probably like, "Woah. I'm a fucking assclown..."

His cell mates will probably give him a proper pigsquealing after the find out about his background. That won't go over well in that setting, and this guy is a scumbag anyway for stealing from sick kids.

Masterchef20072647d ago

Doubt it, maybe anywhere between 2-10 years but I doubt life in prison for stealing game consoles.

RedDead2647d ago

I agree, life imprisonment is way to harsh, he is a cu** for doing it, but the rest of your life?

Marcus Fenix2647d ago

stealing consoles from kids with cancer, I believe ppl who go that far can't ever be good again.

jadenkorri2647d ago (Edited 2647d ago )

no, but he will get a harsher sentence than another person who stole 5 consoles from a mall or something. Fact is, stealing from children, alright things are bad for ya, but stealing from dieing children, that's just morally wrong.
If you robbed some place and killed a random person, and another did the same thing but killed a blind person.
I guarantee the 2nd will be spending more time in jail than the first.

He's screwed, inmates really hate people who do things to kids, parapalegics, or old people, and this dude took from cancer ridden kids? He is so screwed

dkgshiz2647d ago (Edited 2647d ago )

I doubt they will care about this. Well he is a pedophile. So I suppose they will. He looks like prison meat.

dkgshiz2647d ago

Two years in prison, one year of probation. If that. Personally I think he should spend the rest of his life in prison. He clearly wont be helping society out in any way shape or form. I hate thief's more then anything. Excluding internet pirates.

I'm sure the inmates will get him all the help he needs. heck, I'm sure they will line up and take turns to "help" him.

RedDragan2647d ago

He will get a two year sentence, cut to half on good behaviour. And he knew exactly what the condition of children were, those facts do not matter to this kind of person.

AEtherbane2646d ago

Hope he gets a few years to rethink about stealing fun from a young cancer patient.

Sick. Thats all I can say about this. He should be forced to play the Prison Break game for 5 hours a day.

Black-Helghast2647d ago

LOOOOOL!!!!!! That literally made my day.

LOL bubbles

BlackBusterCritic2647d ago

What a piece of shit. Rot in jail, and I hope you get lots of rape.

LoaMcLoa2647d ago

Ok, I hate him just as much as you do, but easy now, fella'...

GodofSackboy2647d ago

Possibly the best idea, and comment, I have ever seen. 100% agree.

pinksteak092647d ago

i live in charlotte and seen this on the news, and by him being a registered sex offender they should've kept him behind bars for atleast 20 years, the judges are way to lenient towards these type of people, and even though i hate microsoft with a passion that doesn't give cowards like him the right to take from poor, innocent and sick children

pinksteak092647d ago

don't care if i got disagrees because i hate microsoft, it's a free country and i'm entitled to my opinion you idiots on the other hand fail to see it's not about somebody hating your favorite gaming franchise, but that these children got the justice they deserve....idiotic bitches
