This burglar's probation is so tough, he's not even allowed to steal kisses.
Jeffrey Hoadley, of Carroll, Neb., was ordered by a judge Friday to not have any romantic relationships during his probation after being convicted in a burglary plot, The Norfolk Daily News reported.
Hoadley helped plan the break-in of an auto parts store that took place last December, when he was 21. Hoadley and his accomplice, Michael Larkowski Jr., both went to the store, but Hoadley backed out at the last minute while Larkowski burglarized the establishment alone.
Hoadley pleaded guilty in June to attempted burglary, according to the Associated Press.
“You have a moral compass," Judge Mark Johnson told Hoadley last week. "Something in you turned away.”
He was sentenced to three years probation, during which time he is prohibited from dating.
Why the mandate for loneliness?
"You need to focus on you," said Johnson, sounding, as Jezebel's Dodai Stewart points out, like Oprah.
He also has to pay an $1,800 fine and serve 120 days in jail at the end of the sentence, unless it's waived. Larkowski was slapped with a 2-4 year prison sentence.
Johnson's order isn't the most bizarre sentence a judge has handed down. Last year, an Oklahoma teen convicted of manslaughter was sentenced to go to church regularly.
