Hospital thief gets seven years

Tatabánya Court on Thursday handed down a seven-year penitentiary term to a repeat offender on several counts of theft, including from hospital patients. The court also ordered confiscation of Ft 94,880.

Press secretary Réka Sós said the perpetrator stole cash from four patients on three different days at an Esztergom hospital.

The culprit stole cash from an absent patient who had just been operated on in the spring of 2009.

He later stole valuables from a person sleeping on a bench at the Esztergom bus station.

The perpetrator had been convicted on four previous occasions.
