Accused Cannoli Robber Gets Community Service, No Prison Time

BOSTON (CBS) – A man accused of robbing a North End bakery of a cannoli will not face prison time if he stays out of trouble for the next nine months.

A judge continued the case against Robert McTernan on Wednesday.

He was facing charges for allegedly holding up Bova’s Bakery at knifepoint shortly after he arrived in Boston from Ireland.  McTernan was visiting on vacation.

Police say he walked in, grabbed a knife, and demanded a cannoli. An employee handed one over, and McTernan took off.

The case will be dismissed assuming McTernan performs 50 hours of community service, undertakes substance abuse evaluation and treatment, and must stay out of trouble for the next nine months.
