BOGOTA, COLOMBIA- A self-declared chocolate addict who admits stealing two boxes of candy bars got a stiff sentence for being a candy junkie.

Luis Augusto Mora got five months in one of Colombia's harshest prisons and the candy bars were worth just $8.

The hard time caught the attention of Colombia's president.

Juan Manuel Santo said in a radio interview misdemeanors like Mora's shouldn't waste prosecutors' time and effort.

The prosecutors in the case countered with a statement saying Mora expressed regret.

Mora says he'll "never again touch a chocolate in my life."
