Only Four Months? I Guess They Recovered The Goose....

In "Seven Years for a Pound of Butter", the London Guardian provides examples of criminal sentences from 1825.
Imprisoned Four Months - John Uncles, 16, Michael Cox, 15, and John Wilson, 5, for stealing a goose.
(I suspect, and hope, that to be a misprint of "15.")
