Criminal Justice Quote: Woman Jailed For Not Returning Rented Video 9 Years Ago

     A South Carolina woman has been arrested, charged, and thrown in jail after being accused of failing to return a video….Kayla Michelle Finley, 27, of Pickens, went to the Pickens County Jail on February 13, 2014 to report an unspecified crime--but instead was charged with one.

     The suspect spent a night in jail…after being accused of renting the romantic comedy "Monster-in-Law" starring Jennifer Lopez back in 2005. [Watching that movie should have been punishment enough.] But she allegedly failed to return it to Dalton Video, which has since closed.

     The store owner, P. J. Dalton, had taken the matter to court nine years ago and gotten a judge to issue a warrant. The matter remained a cold case until…a records check performed at the jail turned up the summons….
