DirecTV Installer Faces Seven Years Behind Bars After Stealing $5,400 From A Customer

21-year-old DirecTV installer Arthur Christian faces felony grand larceny charges after allegedly stealing $5,400 from a locked safe while working unsupervised in a customer’s basement.

We can’t really blame Arthur for misreading DirecTV’s past scrapes with bribery and thievery as a license to steal. To his credit, he apparently managed to show for a 9 a.m. Sunday appointment. Maybe the judge will see that as a mitigating factor during sentencing? He’ll need all the help he can get: if convicted, Arthur faces between two and a half and seven years in jail.
