Correction: Stolen Dali story
Wednesday - 2/27/2013, 9:50pm EST
NEW YORK (AP) -- In a story Feb. 26 about the theft of a Salvador Dali painting, The Associated Press erroneously reported the nature of Phivos Istavrioglou's guilty plea. It was the result of the judge's offer of a lesser punishment under certain terms, not a plea deal reached by defenders and prosecutors.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Greek man charged in NY Dali theft pleads guilty
Greek man accused of swiping Salvador Dali painting from NYC gallery pleads guilty
NEW YORK (AP) -- A Greek man has admitted to stealing a Salvador Dali painting from a New York City gallery, only to return it in the mail.
Phivos Istavrioglou pleaded guilty on Tuesday following his arrest in the theft of a work titled "Cartel de Don Juan Tenorio."
Prosecutors say the fashion industry publicist walked into the Manhattan gallery in June, put the painting valued at about $150,000 in a shopping bag and walked out. He anonymously mailed the piece back to the United States from Greece after seeing news coverage of the theft.
Istavrioglou can avoid additional jail time if he remains incarcerated until his formal sentencing on March 12. He also must pay more than $9,000 in restitution.
His lawyer said it was a stupid thing to do.
