A man with no criminal record spent 10 months in a German prison instead of his convicted brother before anyone noticed.
After his 35-year-old brother Rudolf was sentenced to two years on a procuring and prostitution conviction, Norbert, 37, suggested swapping places, reports Hamburger Abendblatt.

“So I says: “Hey, I’m out of work and have this drinking problem and need to dry out. So, I’ll serve your time for you“.”
