Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
It's already mid-January. You know what that means: you've probably already broken your New Year's resolutions.
Why is it that every year we set out to better ourselves -- but every year we fail? Maybe there's truth to the old saying that old habits die hard.
This week's edition of T.G.I.FindLaw! focuses on some colorful characters that either clearly broke their resolutions -- or got into trouble for trying them out.
Clearly, if this was Washington man Christopher Goheen's resolution he failed. Goheen, 26, was arrested this week with 23 pounds of marijuana in his car.
Troopers stopped Goheen after he hit a deer and failed to stop. Thinking that this was suspicious, they caught up with him. The marijuana is worth around $57,000.
Getting fit is a popular resolution -- except you really shouldn't go to the gym in some circumstances. Oregonian Tyler Lupoli used to work at a 24 Hour Fitness. His tenure ended abruptly when he was convicted of touching young children inappropriately in 2006.
Lupoli was released in 2011. He apparently changed his name -- then re-enrolled at the same gym as a member. Gym employees contacted police. Lupoli turned himself in for his parole violation.
Indiana man William Francis Blankenship stole a police car while handcuffed. He even managed to radio officers to ask them where the keys to the cuffs were. He also asked them were the car's cigarette lighter was. It's strange that he would be honest enough to ask authorities for the keys to his freedom. One can only imagine the conversation. Blankenship was still on the loose Thursday.
Being charitable is great. Being charitable when you're a porn company? That's bound to get a bit raunchy. RealTouch owner Scott Rinaldo has said his company is aiming to distribute "a thousand dildos for the military wives." These little "devices" are web-based and can allow partners get "close" to each other despite the distance.
Is this creepy? Or sweet? That's hard to tell. With that, we'll let you get back to breaking your New Year's resolutions.
