President Donald Trump called LaVar Ball "ungrateful" for not being more appreciative for getting his son and two other UCLA players out of five to 10 years in jail for a shoplifting charge in China.

The only problem is a shoplifting charge apparently does not carry that kind of jail time with a conviction. In fact, it doesn't carry jail time at all, according to a Hong Kong law professor.

“It’s nonsense,” Fu Hualing, a law professor at the University of Hong Kong told the New York Times. “I would be surprised if they were even prosecuted.”

According to the Times, a shoplifting charge in China is a "relatively minor" crime and foreigners convicted of the offense are more often deported than put in jail.
