Danish prisoners paying stand-ins to serve time for them/Dänische Gefangene bezahlen Ersatz trading places

Danish prisons are not allowed to ask for identity papers with photographs on them when they admit prisoners. As a result, according to the Daily Telegraph, wealthy prisoners are paying impersonators to serve time for them. This is done in the period between conviction and start of sentence, which may be several months.
