Let’s admit, we all love chocolate, we just can’t resist! But is your chocolate addiction worth ending up in prison?

Chocolate addict, Luis Augusto Mora, was caught stealing 2 boxes of chocolate from a supermarket in Colombia.

He confessed his addiction to the tasty dessert and to the theft, and was later sentenced to 5 months in one of Colombia’s harshest prisons!

The Colombian President, Juan Manuel Santos, believes that Luis should have a less harsh punishment and that a small crime like his should not waste everyone’s time.

The president says that the money that will be used to keep Luis in prison could be used towards imprisoning other people who are committing much more serious crimes and are a much greater danger to society.

Its clear that Luis has learnt to say no to his addiction and he has released a statement saying that he will “never again touch chocolate in my life.”
