Default Taiwan - Man told he is too old for jail.

A Taiwanese jail has reportedly turned away a 96-year-old man, saying he would not be able to look after himself behind bars.

Sun Hsin-ming, a former railway worker, was sentenced to three months in jail for squatting.
He refused to pay a fine to stay out of prison, insisting that he was innocent of the charges against him.
But as soon as he turned up at the jail he was sent back to the prosecutor's office, according to local media.

White-haired and frail, stooping over his walking stick, Sun seems an unlikely criminal.
