    The San Francisco Public Defender's Office will ask the San Francisco Superior Court on Monday morning to release a man who is currently serving a six-month jail sentence for eating a leftover cookie without permission while undergoing a residential treatment program.

    Gregory Fields, 42, of San Francisco, was caught eating the leftover cookie during an event where his residential treatment program - The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center - was making and handing out lunch to the homeless, the Public Defender's office said. The date of the occurrence wasn't provided.

    After eating the cookie without asking, the public defender's office said Fields was asked by the program to leave. Fields worked with his caseworker to have Harbor Light let him stay, and they agreed, if he would start the program again.

    According to the Public Defender's Office, starting it over would mean a 30-day detox and then a 30-day blackout period from the outside world.

    The office claims Fields has been clean for three months.
