Prosecutors seek stiffer sentences for 2 in rare book thefts



PITTSBURGH (AP) — Prosecutors are asking a judge to stiffen the home confinement and probation sentences he imposed on a former librarian and a bookseller who pleaded guilty in the theft of rare books from the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh in a years-long scheme. Common Pleas Judge Alexander Bicket sentenced John Schulman to four years of home confinement and Gregory Priore to three years of home confinement. Both were ordered to spend a dozen years on probation. Prosecutors called for “total confinement,” citing the seriousness of the offense. Schulman’s attorney vowed a response “in due course.” Priore’s attorney said the prosecutor's memo was under review.
