Toso was a pizza baker and started dishing up the piping hot alimony after the economy froze in 2008. He said all he could afford was the free pizza. The judge wrote, there was no evidence of a crime - maybe because all the evidence was so delicious. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
