2 French brothers plead no contest, reach sentencing deals in San Antonio courthouse break-in
SAN ANTONIO (AP) ' Two French brothers have pleaded no contest to a felony burglary charge after they were caught drunkenly roaming the corridors of the Bexar (BAYR) County Courthouse.
The San Antonio Express-News (http://bit.ly/sA6uzU) reports Hichan and Mehdi Ajjaid agreed Monday to sentences of 75 days in jail and $1,000 fines.
Thomas Hille, who is Hichan Ajjaid's court-appointed lawyer, says he expects the pair to be released from jail in time to use their Dec. 8 return air tickets to France.
The pair was among five French tourists who visited San Antonio as part of what was to be a cross-country tour in a rented recreational vehicle.
