Judge Refuses To Give Probation To Rip Torn In Connecticut Break-in

August 12th, 2010 - 8:07 pm ICT by Pen Men At Work  

rip August 12, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): 79-year-old Rip Torn happens to be a competent American actor, who is extensively recognized especially on account of his enactment of a character in the motion picture, ‘Men in Black’. Torn has been awarded by Emmy in the past. It has now been reported that Torn had been refused probation by the judge, James Ginocchio, on Wednesday. The rationale behind the probationary hearing was that Torn had purportedly broken and entered a Connecticut bank in January. What had occurred was that, in January this year, Torn was supposedly inebriated. Under the condition of inebriation, it is alleged that he barged into a bank while equipped with a gun. It is alleged that he was so severely captured by intoxication that he deemed that the bank was his residence.

The judge refused to supply Torn the capability to go into rehabilitation. If that had happened, it would have permitted Torn to steer clear of prison time. This data has been mentioned by the Associated Press.

Torn has pleaded that he is guiltless vis-à-vis the accusations of robbery and possession of arms. The accusation of robbery against him has been cancelled but the charges of encroachment and carrying an uncertified gun remain.

The judge has disclosed that the accusations against Torn were too serious for him to permit Torn to stay away from jail. The Associated Press has divulged that any person, who is convicted for transporting a gun into a bank, must use up a single year in prison.
The trial against Torn is listed to commence in September.

Torn’s legal representative happens to be A. Thomas Waterfall. The judge was not in agreement with Waterfall. The judge supported the state prosecutor, Thomas Shepack.
