(TMZ)   Woman arrested for renting the Jennifer Lopez movie 'Monster-in-Law' and failing to return it. Honestly, I would have thought just renting it would be some kind of criminal offense   (tmz.com) divider line 14

brimed03: ILoveBurritos: That sounds like a civil matter, how did the video store owner get it turned into a criminal matter?

Theft? *shrugs* Dunno.

But the real punishment here is that now everyone knows she rented that movie.


More likely small claims court, she'd moved, no show ruling against her, a few more months and no payment, since again, she moved and had no clue, tada warrant for 'contempt of court' the brand new one-size-fits-all debtor's prison.

Amazingly in most of the US this would never happen. In the shiathole states that have the the most people incarcerated this happens every farking day. Let's just see where SC ranks. Oh, 9th worst in the US based on incarceration rates? Almost as if they enjoy for profit prisons down there. Either that or they are just too farking ignorant to know better.

Bslim: Sudlow: She shows up at court, there is no plaintiff so the charges are dropped. But she probably still gets whacked with "court costs" of a few hundred dollars

DING! DING!


DONG! DONG!

If she showed up back when the court case was held, the shop owner would have shown up because the business was still around back then.  But, to correct everyone's outrage...she wasn't arrested for failing to return a video, she was arrested for failure to appear to court after being officially served with papers.  The funny part is, she was 16 at the time of the rental and a minor does not have the capacity to enter into a contract so the case would probably have been dropped right then and there.

Huh? I thought wearing an itchy red sweater was the only penalty for that...

More importantly is that it happened 10 years ago. I call bs.

Literally Addicted: What cop, prosecuter and judge could possibly justify such a ridiculous waste of taxpayer money? This is the kind of idiocy that makes me want to slap people.


Small SC town.
How much you want to wager the store owner is the local sheriff's brother-in-law (and cousin)?

You'd think outstanding late fees would be something sold to debt collection agencies after putting an no limit clause in the rental agreement.

No, you'd think  returning it would be the offensive part.
