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.”
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.
