Yes, honesty is the best policy. Perhaps this gent will reap some good karma from his courtroom candor. Per The Florida Sun Sentinel:

In federal court on Thursday to answer to charges that he guarded an Oakland Park brothel, [Willie David Rice] gave this response when the judge asked about his line of work: “Criminal.”

Shazam!

After an awkward pause, Rice, 45, explained he’s never had legitimate employment. He was one of three people arrested in May during a raid on the Boom Boom Room, a bordello with underage girls.

U.S. District Judge William Dimitrouleas said in the 22 years he’s been on the bench and asked about employment, “it’s the first time I’ve heard that answer.”

And likely the last. It probably won’t surprise you that Willie “The Truth” Rice pleaded guilty (to possessing a firearm by a convicted felon). He could get 10 years in the big house. Here’s the source, including a photo of The Truth.

Unless he just hasn’t been caught other times, there is a clear pattern to this man’s behavior. As luck would have it (bad luck, that is), a Washington woman happened to be on the job when, per
The Highline Times,

A registered sex offender [allegedly] exposed himself to a bikini barista at a coffee stand in SeaTac. The man has two similar convictions for indecent exposure in 2007 and 2009. The 25-year-old Seattle man has not yet entered a plea to the latest charge. He is currently under supervision of the state Department of Corrections.

Maybe it’s the proliferation of profiling shows out there, but it kinda makes you wonder what is going on with this dude. Here’s the source.

To say that this Pennsylvania woman showed no remorse after faking cancer to make a buck would be an understatement. She’s actually irate with one of the people she conned! As reported by The Delaware County Daily Times:

A former Pottstown woman who served jail time for lying about having breast and ovarian cancer and duping friends into organizing a fundraiser for her is in trouble again, this time for allegedly harassing one of those friends.

Alicia E. Tolton, 27, formerly of Pottstown and most recently of the 100 block of Allison Road in Upper Moreland, faces an Oct. 5 arraignment in Montgomery County Court on a new charge of harassment in connection with a July 30 incident during which she allegedly left an obscenity-laced voice mail message on the phone of a woman who testified against Tolton in the fake cancer scheme.

“Hey (the victim), it’s Alicia. And, uh, I just wanted to let you know that I got out of jail on Tuesday. Go (expletive) yourself…” Tolton allegedly uttered in her July 30 phone message to an Upper Moreland woman, according to a criminal complaint.

Tolton placed the call just days after being paroled from jail and placed on probation in connection with the fake cancer scheme, according to court papers filed in county court.

Hmm. Sounds like a probation violation too. You can read a lot more here.

Surely there are worse grandmothers out there, but probably not many. What did she do? Well, as reported by myfoxorlando.com, …

A central Florida woman has been sentenced to five years in prison for a scheme to sell her infant grandson.

[46-year-old Patty] Bigbee and her boyfriend, 42-year-old Lawrence Works, were arrested in November after accepting a $30,000 cashier’s check for then-2-month-old Aidan Fleming at a Daytona Beach parking lot. The supposed buyer — who was actually a daughter Bigbee had given up for adoption years earlier — had reported the deal to authorities.

The time?

Works and the child’s mother, 22-year-old Stephanie Bigbee-Davis, both pleaded no contest for their parts in the scheme in March. Works was sentenced to time-served, and Bigbee-Davis received two years [for selling a child and communications fraud].

As for the baby –

The daughter Bigbee gave up for adoption now wants to adopt Aidan legally.

In the law, as in many other areas, an occasional housecleaning is needed. According to the London Burough of Sutton, here are some outdated laws (from 1894 – 1935) that are still on the books (via The Guardian):

(1) No person shall play tipcat or any offensive or dangerous game in such a manner as to cause obstruction or danger (Tipcat is an early form of rounders played with a sharpened stick instead of a ball).

(2) The person having control of a steam-powered whirligig will bring it to a standstill if a person becomes ill.

(3) If two or more people willfully jostle or annoy any foot passengers, each such person shall be guilty of an offence.

(4) No person shall to the inconvenience or danger of passengers carry a bag of soot in the street.

(5) Domestic servants should register with the council.

(6) No person shall bathe in a river within 200 yards of public place without wearing a dress.

(7) Orange peel or other dangerous substances shall not be thrown in a public place.

(8) No person shall sing in any public place within 100 yards of any place of public worship.

(9) No person shall convey along any street the undressed carcass of any animal or any offensive offal.

(10) Spitting on the wall of a public carriage is prohibited.

It’s undisputed that, if you postpone dealing with a problem it goes away. Wait, you mean that’s not true? Then why does everyone act as if it were? Anyway, in yet another example of what The Juice thought was a universal truth, per The Orlando Sentinel:

According to an arrest report, the incident began in a shopping plaza at Pine Hills Road and State Road 50, where 31-year-old Schyvonne Whitaker saw her boyfriend talking to another woman.

The woman, Tina Reese, said that Whitaker approached the pair in a red sport utility vehicle. The boyfriend’s response, Reese said, was to tell Whitaker to “drive off.”

Oh, it’s on now.

Reese left the shopping plaza at the intersection, heading north on Pine Hills in a Pontiac G6, when suddenly she saw Whitaker’s Suzuki XL7 approach at a high speed.

Whitaker began ramming the rear bumper of the sedan, witnesses said, and both drivers lost control. They crashed into a house at the intersection of Deauville Drive.

Before the crash, it seems that Ms. Whitaker was a bit overconfident.

Whitaker was taken into custody shortly after the incident. A passenger in her SUV told deputies that Whitaker said “I got you now” as she rammed Reese’s bumper.

And the fallout?

Reese, Whitaker and the other occupants in both vehicles survived mostly unscathed. The front walls of the small, one-story structure, however, suffered heavy damage in the crash.

Deputies arrested Whitaker in the suspected attack, charging her with aggravated battery with a motor vehicle, aggravated assault with a motor vehicle and criminal mischief.

An arresting deputy added a charges of providing a false identification and driving with a suspended license after he said Whitaker purposely misspelled her name while in custody.

And here’s another reason why maybe Ms. Whitaker should have dealt with her problems off the road.

The deputy wrote in his report that he later discovered Whitaker’s license has 24 active suspensions dating back to 2008, and is also currently expired.

Records show Whitaker has several previous arrests in Orange County, and served more than three years in prison after a 1995 conviction on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

She remained in the Orange County Jail on Saturday afternoon. Her bail was set at $5,650.

What? With that history, and trying to run someone off the road, bail is $5,650? How do you even come up with a number like that? Here’s the source, including photos of the crash scene.

If you watch football or basketball, no doubt you’ve heard announcers say that a team will continue running a certain play until their opponent is able to stop it. Well, it seems a bank robber in Florida subscribes to the same theory. Per The South Florida Sun-Sentinel:

Authorities are on the lookout for a robber with some brand loyalty: He’s struck the same bank so many times, the tellers recognize him.

“It’s him again,” one of them said during the latest heist on Saturday, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

The man has targeted the BankAtlantic branch at 4211 W. Commercial Blvd., four times since Feb. 1.

Officials described him as a portly man with dread-locks.

You’re probably thinking “is this guy nuts?” But consider this:

He has worn a different outfit for each heist.

On Saturday, he wore black pants, a black T-shirt, dark gloves with red stripes and a black hat with red and yellow stripes. He ordered two tellers to stuff cash into a white, plastic grocery bag, then casually walked away, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Brilliant!

If this case is at all typical, it’s very tough for a doctor in the UK to be permanently barred from practicing medicine. As reported by The Daily Express:

Dr Ellen MacInnes, who has also been banned from driving three times, had to provide a blood sample to prove she was fit to get back behind the wheel, a disciplinary hearing heard.

… However the doctor, of Chelmsford, Essex, abused her position of trust and lied to one of her patients by inventing an illness and claiming she needed to take a sample of their blood. She also forged the signature of a fellow ­doctor.

You probably already know what she did with the blood.

… testers became suspicious when two samples arrived at their laboratory – one clean and one with “abnormalities”.

Doh!

Dr MacInnes, formerly of the Baddow Village Surgery in Essex, admitted acting dishonestly when she appeared before a disciplinary panel.

The punishment?

The General Medical Council panel banned her from medicine for a year “for the protection of patients, the public interest and her own interest”.

You might be thinking: “that seems reasonable. Maybe she just needs another chance.” Well, it turns out she’s already had another chance, and another.

She was banned after being sacked from the Tennyson House Surgery in Chelmsford in 2006 after fitting a contraceptive coil “while smelling of alcohol”.

She was also suspended for six months in 2009 after receiving her third conviction for drink-driving.

So, after all that, she can reapply in a year. Here’s the source.

Who is the source of these strange driving-related laws? Avis. Here are some of the laws Avis found, which are published in a “Holiday Highway Code.”

In Cyprus, it’s illegal to drink ANYTHING while you are driving, including water.

In Greece, if you park illegally, the police may seize your license plates!

In Romania and Russia, “it’s actually against the law to drive a dirty vehicle.”

In Denmark, “before you turn the ignition, make sure you check for people under the car – a legal requirement alongside checking the brakes, lights, steering and horn before you drive.”

Stealing snack food may be sweeping the nation. The Juice will monitor the situation and keep you posted. The latest installment, which involves undergarments, took place at a gas station in Valparaiso, Indiana. As reported by nwitimes.com:

Faith Green, 39, of Valparaiso faces theft, public intoxication, resisting law enforcement and criminal mischief charges, while Anthony Green, 23, Joliet, Ill., faces resisting law enforcement and drunken driving charges, all stemming from a bizarre Wednesday morning encounter with police.

Around 3:15 a.m. Wednesday, Valparaiso police reportedly found the Greens, both allegedly intoxicated, inside the Pilot Travel Center, 4105 Morthland Drive.

An employee told officers Faith Green reportedly caused $200 in damage to the gas station’s restroom.

Why? That’s just weird. And then …

As an officer was removing the woman from the store, she reportedly began unloading snack cakes and candy bars from her bra.

There goes the snack in the clink. Or did it …

Police said [at] Porter County Jail … officers reportedly found another pack of cookies in Faith Green’s underwear.

Curse you thorough-searching officer! As for Mr. Green:

Officers said Anthony Green then began cursing at them, before leaving the store and heading back to his SUV. Police said when he was told to stop, he took a fighting stance with officers. He backed down, police said, after they threatened to use a Taser to subdue him.
