Those with longer memories will recall late Roman, fifth century hoard found in Rhineland Palatinate that was instantly dubbed the legendary Nibelung treasure. It made the deadlines in February last year (previous posts here and here).
I had been curious what happened to Benny C, the chap accused of looting the treasure. It appears that he was put on probation for 15 months and ordered to pay an EUR3,000 fine to a children's hospice.
