No Jail for Memorabilia Thief

The AP reports that Barbara Moore, a college teacher convicted for possessing stolen archival items from the papers of pianist Glenn Gould (she was acquitted on the theft charge in October) has been sentenced to pay a $5,500 fine and perform 60 hours of community service. Moore is believed to have snatched the papers when she was researching at the National Archives of Canada in the late 1980s.
