Man released after swimming from Canada to USA

DETROIT (AP) — There are a lot of things you can call a man who decided to swim from Canada to the U.S. to make sure his homemade books arrived before Christmas. But his lawyer says “dangerous” isn’t one of them. And apparently a judge in Detroit agrees. A federal judge has sentenced Christopher Sagajllo (sa-GAHZH’-loh) to time served, meaning he can return to Canada after two months in U.S. custody. Sagajllo says he had four U.S. customers for his books — but he was denied entry at Niagara Falls, New York so he couldn’t deliver them. He said he feared something bad would happen if didn’t deliver the books by Christmas — so he swam the packages over. He was arrested just south of Detroit after making the crossing in a wetsuit.
