In New Orleans, a third conviction of “theft of goods” is considered a felony. Grimes is pleading not guilty to the crime. He is facing charges for shoplifting out of Rite-Aid, Save-A-Center and Blockbuster Video. Judge Franz Zibilich who was in charge of overseeing Grimes’s arraignment last week said,

“Isn’t this a little over the top? Twenty years to life for a Snickers bar, or two or three or four.”

It truly is outrageous.
