Yep, cattle rustling has become a little more technical than the western days. Long are the days of literally roping the cattle from a herd. Fake identities, fake companies, and lots of bad checks.....this is the new cattle rustling.
According to the Associated Press, an East Texas Man from Athens, Texas, with a prolific record of stealing cattle, was convicted and sentenced to 99 years. It sounds like a harsh sentence doesn't it?
