Ossining Man Stole Warhol Painting

Courthouse News is reporting that an Ossining man will get 10 years in prison for stealing an Andy Warhol Piece.

A man who robbed his elderly, wealthy boss of $3.2 million and an Andy Warhol silkscreen was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison. The Andy Warhol piece is a silkscreen on a wooden crate, made to look like a Heinz 57 case of ketchup.

A jury convicted James Biear in November 2010 of stealing that piece as well as other artwork and $3.2 million from his former employer, Kenward Elmslie, grandson of media mogul Joseph Pulitzer.

I have know this guy for approx. 20 yrs. and have always hated him. If I won the lottery, I would not be as happy as I am to hear that he's gonna do 10 yrs in Federal Prison. Hey Jim, how's that toilet wine? Margaret from California
