Matthew Miller Was Promptly Handcuffed After Receiving His Sentence

24 year-old Matthew Miller has been sentenced to 6 years hard labor for illegally entering the country to commit espionage.  He entered North Korea in April, and then tore up his tourist visa and demanded to be arrested.  Miller, from Bakersfield, California, claimed he wanted to experience prison life in North Korea.

He was emotionless and dressed in all black in his trial, looking much paler and thinner than when he entered the country.  The court ruled that it would not hear any appeals to its decisions, and Miller was charged under Article 64, which deals with espionage.
