Where's the beef? It was under Mark Zachary's shirt. He's gotten the maximum 10-year sentence for stealing an $80 slab of meat.Last week, jurors in Orangeburg, SC found him guilty of shoplifting. But Zachary claims he was doing nothing of the sort.

The Times and Democrat newspaper reports Zachary testified he was "massaging" the meat -- not stealing it.
