Former UFC fighter Lee Murray, who was convicted of masterminding the biggest non-wartime cash heist in history, has had his prison sentence increased from 10 years to 25, according to BBC News.

On February 22, 2006, Murray and a group of others broke into a Securitas cash depot in Tonbridge, Kent and escaped with the U.S. equivalent of $92.5 million in cash. A series of arrests soon followed and the British-born Murray was named as the mastermind of the crime.

I don't find that fair at all. He'd already been serving a 10 years sentence...you shouldn't be able to just randomly increase it.

I know it! What the hell. He stole that money fair and square. And I'm sure that bank manager's family had it coming anyway. I see no reason why he shouldn't server a more proper sentence.

Maybe Morocco laws allow for such adjustments. He wanted to hide err, "live" there. So I guess this is what he gets.

Funny how criminals can get the backing of the public if you just put a little drama to the story.

Maybe he should break out, then you could have a movie where he robs the bank goes to jail and then breaks out. Haha
