    An American man has been sentenced to 20 months jail time for robbing several convenience stores in Bali.

    Paul Anthony Hoffman’s sentence was handed down on Wednesday in Denpasar District Court.

    “The defendant was proven convincingly and legally guilty of theft by violence or by threat of violence against others and violated Article 365, Section 65, Paragraph 1 of the Criminal Code,” Chief Justice Gde Ginarsa said court, as quoted by Antara Bali.

    Ginarsa’s verdict was lighter than the prosecutor’s demand that Hoffman get 2.5 years in prison. Reasons cited for some leniency were that Hoffman appeared polite during the trial process.

    Hoffman, 57, a Sanur-based expat, originally from New York, was arrested in February 2017 after holding up a number of convenience stores that same month, armed with a knife.

    So with time served, I estimate he will be out in around November 2018, maybe less for good behavior.

    Yep and presumably can never come back to Indonesia again. I wonder where that leaves his wife and kid.

    Came over to check this dude out .... was supposed to meet him long time ago about a website, deusch did not turn up ... figured he was an unreliable type from there...... saw before and after photo of him, wow what a fall from his 'I'm doing so great and ride with the cool crowd now' days.

    He is an admin on a facebook group i am in, he still mods it, so he has a phone in the lockup or access at least..... asked him how the food was in the klink, he deleted it...

    ...that Hoffman appeared polite during the trial process... Good to know: You may rob what and who ever but just appear polite, then the sentence will be a laugh
