Thomas Kinkade Gets Jail Time for DUI

Thomas Kinkade was arrested for driving under the influence outside of Carmel, California, over the summer, and now the sentence has been handed down: The self-named "painter of light" — famous for selling lots and lots of shlocky paintings with titles like "Central Park in the Fall" and "Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland" — will do ten days in jail, nine months of a DUI offender program, and five years of informal court probation, and pay a $1,846 fine. Kinkade's BAC was at double the legal limit, which, wow. Also: In order to make his stay in the big house a bit less daunting, Vulture has created an image, above, of prison as Kinkade might see it.
