North Korea sentences US tourist to 15 years in prison

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea’s highest court sentenced an American tourist to 15 years in prison with hard labor for subversion on Wednesday, weeks after authorities presented him to media and he tearfully confessed that he had tried to steal a propaganda banner.

Otto Warmbier, 21, a University of Virginia undergraduate, was convicted and sentenced in a one-hour trial in North Korea’s Supreme Court.

Probably 59 minutes longer than Trump would have convicted him.
