Believe It

"I can't believe this crap," Scott A. Masters said. And you can believe this 41-year-old resident of Farmington, Missouri. He's accused of shoplifting a doughnut and "pushing a store worker who tried to stop him ... with that shove, his shoplifting turned into a strong-arm robbery."

The "doughnut man," as the suspect is now known, faces five to 15 years in prison for his crime. Masters, who appeared in court Friday, is stunned. The prosecutor shows no signs of backing down. In fact, because Masters has a prior record, he could get a sentence of 30 years to life.

Just for the record, it cost 52 cents "and Masters never got a chance to enjoy that fateful doughnut. He said he threw it to the ground when he fled."
