How does someone get a sentence of “four years and nine minutes”?

(This post doubles as: “POS terrorist ends hunger strike”)

Yes, minutes, not months. AP:

A former professor who pleaded guilty to conspiring to aid a Palestinian terrorist group but has refused to testify before a grand jury in a related investigation has ended a nearly two-month hunger strike in a southeast Virginia jail, his supporters said Wednesday.


Prosecutors decided to retry him, and he entered a plea bargain on lesser charges. He was sentenced to four years and nine minutes in prison with credit for time served.
