Flag thief gets diversion program, community service

Channel 5 is reporting that Bryan Huff, who was charged with theft last month for taking his neighbor’s upside down flag, appeared in Norwood’s mayor’s court yesterday afternoon. He agreed to enter a diversion program and will have to complete 40 hours of community service by December 20. The charges will be dropped if he meets the deadline. Huff, a former Marine, was also ordered to stay away from his neighbor, a U.S. Navy veteran. So, does the punishment fit the crime?
