With the lack of cheap accomodation in Zürich that might be a shrewd move.

I did hear that for some crimes you are actually allowed to work during the day and then return to prison at night. Maybe you can find out which crime best suits your needs.

I was thinking of making off with a large consignment of chocolate (cremetta) or perhaps some low fat paprika crisps!

Re: In the Clink

They are offering me 24 days in lieu of a CHF2400 fine for speeding. I have been wondering myself. Statistics say that they are full of non Swissies! I will probably end up paying the fine!!

You can study for a degree while in prison. I know of a case where a prisoner studied for a degree with assistance from a local university, including regular visits from a professor, and he duly obtained a degree.
