SALEM, N.H. (AP) – A mother and son charged in a black market business involving stolen video games are serving sentences in New Hampshire.
Sixty-five-year-old Luise LaQuerre of Amesbury, Mass., has been sentenced in Salem to six months in jail. Police said she violated the terms of a 12-month suspended sentence for stealing video games with her son last year at a Best Buy.
Her lawyer says the crimes are the product of threats against LaQuerre by her 22-year-old son, Christopher Andrukaitis. But prosecutors said tapes monitoring conversations between the two when Andrukaitis was jailed in Massachusetts shows them talking about what to tell police about the games.
Andrukaitis was sentenced in Salem to 10 months in jail on the theft case. He faces a domestic assault charge; the victim is LaQuerre.

    WOW now I have to play devil’s advocate on this news article. At first glance it is cleat that the two of them broke the law and should have to do the time for their crime, especially since they violated the original 12 month period, yeti if you look at the current state of our economy, can you blame them? I mean, this article is vague and one-sided, since it does not explain to us whether these people were suffering from poverty, recently jobless, or if they simply just wanted to majke a few extra bucks, any way you dice it, the law is the law, don’t committ the crime if you arn’t willing to serve the time.
