This drawing presented by the defense team in a court filing at federal court in Chicago shows a drawing by ex-con Walter Unbehaun, 74, sent to the federal judge in his bank robbery case before his sentencing on Thursday, April 17, 2014. Unbehaun said he robbed a suburban Chicago bank so that he could be returned to prison, which he regarded as his home. His lawyers have said he felt bored and alone outside of prison, spending much of his time drawing and watching TV. Court filings say Unbehaun made the drawing he sent to the judge in jail while awaiting sentencing. (AP Photo/Defense team court filing)
