KODAK CROSSING, Ind.
(AP) KODACK, Ind., Nov. 19 (AP): An Indiana man who says he was robbed by a black hole in a Kodak camera’s black hole has been sentenced to three years in prison.
A judge Friday sentenced John E. O’Sullivan to three months in prison for robbing the camera company’s Bloomington headquarters in December 2010.
He said O’Sullivan was robbed while working at the company’s headquarters.
O’sullivan is appealing the conviction.
The judge also ordered him to pay $4,500 in restitution.
The U.S. Supreme Court in March ordered a review of the Supreme Court’s 2010 ruling that said the use of black holes in cameras violates the First Amendment.
In a unanimous decision, the court said black holes are “unreasonable, unnecessary, and in violation of the Constitution’s guarantee of free speech.”
A few other states have outlawed using black holes, but the majority of states still allow them.
Indiana, for instance, requires that cameras must have black holes at least 10 times the size of a grain of sand, which is about the size or depth of a dime.
