Really, dude? That's the likely reaction to what appears to be the latest entry in the Annals of the Criminally Stupid. First, we must stress that Steven Mulhall, 21, of Coral Springs, Fla., has only been accused -- not convicted -- of the following:
He allegedly stole from a Florida state judge and then posted the evidence on Facebook.
In other words, if Felony Stupidity were a crime, the penalty for this would be life in prison with no shot at parole.
Here's what happened, according to Doreen Christensen, our colleague at the Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Mulhall pried the nameplate off the door to Broward Circuit Judge Michael Orlando's courtroom. He then posed with the booty, above, and posted the picture on his girlfriend's Facebook account, according to Christensen, who cites the arrest record.
A sharp-eyed Facebook "friend" tipped off law enforcement. Deputies verified that Mulhall had been in Judge Orlando's courtroom around the same time as the theft, which is believed to have occurred on Feb. 23.
