Two men were given five year jail sentences by a Prague court for taking part in the theft of items from a Marilyn Monroe exhibition being staged in the Czech capital. The two men were found guilty of taking the items. A third accused was given a three year conditional sentence. They can appeal to a higher court. Rare photographs and items for the Prague exhibition were taken in May 2013 after they were being shipped to Prague from Italy. The stolen items included rare photos and an invitation to president John F. Kennedy’s birthday party.
