A man who stole a slice of pepperoni pizza last summer was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison under California's "three strikes and you're out" law. Jerry Dewayne Williams, 27, must serve 20 years before becoming eligible for parole, under a 1994 law that mandates long prison sentences for felons with prior convictions for a serious or violent felony. The good news: a California Corrections Department spokeswoman assures TIME Daily that pizza is occasionally served in the state's prison cafeterias.
