A Nampa man will serve six months in county jail after fudging his income amount in order to receive unemployment benefits. According to a story in the Idaho Press-Tribune, Andrew W. Sathre, 41, claimed more than $12,000 in unemployment benefits while working for a Nampa construction company. After serving his 180 days in the pokey, Sathre will also face five years of probation and a $12,218.75 bill from the Idaho Department of Commerce and Labor. The moral of this story: Damn those CD clubs! They give you the first three discs for free, but before you know it, you need to get a whole new thievin' scheme just to pay for your copy of Foreigner's Greatest Hits.
