Western Michigan University student William K. Bradley has been sentenced for larceny in a building.

He stole a computer.

From the Kalamazoo County jail.

Where he already was serving a sentence in a different case.

Kalamazoo County Circuit Judge Gary Giguere Jr. sentenced Bradley on Monday, telling the Kalamazoo resident his jailhouse theft was "the dumbest crime I've heard today" and "may be in the top half-dozen in my career."

Bradley, who has racked up six felonies and four misdemeanors by the age of 25, agreed with the judge, saying, "I'm not the best criminal."

Bradley asked for home arrest, but Giguere instead ordered him back to jail for six months.

Western spokeswoman Cheryl Roland tells the Kalamazoo Gazette Bradley is a sophomore at the university.

    He is not the smartest person if he is still in school at 25.

    I think I like his response even better. "I'm not the best criminal." Implying that he'll try harder next time... What a tool

    Future criminal business owners will hire him. They like risk takers.
