From the headline, it sounds outrageous!

But once you know “the rest of the story”, felony charge and 5 years for a serial petty criminal PITA sounds like a good plan.

So, two petty thefts is one felony?
That sounds to me to be rather... petty.

I,ve seen them do this at McDonalds and Panera and other places that employ teenagers, and in fact one man not only helped himself to coffee with his own cup, he stole a newspaper on the way out!

They don’t have capital punishment in that state? Must be a “whitey” who got arrested,’cuz “protected classes” don’t get arrested.

Enviro-commies took over Naples years ago.

Naples is sooooo deep into the “Twilight Zone” that the developers are paying for Reid Noss to come to town.

Heh. Probably shouldn’t give out free cups if you’re that sensitive about your fountain drinks. Courtesy cup; courtesy Coke.

How retarded.

In Fl. A theft is a felony over $300 or is a third or subsequent conviction. Makes sense when people continue to incur petit thefts. Same as Dui’s and dwlsr’s in Fl.

Abaire faces additional misdemeanor counts of . . . . disorderly intoxication

Somehow I knew there had to be booze involved in something like this -- there usually is.

A few years ago there was a pizza slice theft that was the 3rd strike and the guy got a major stay in prison.

What people don’t realize is that the 3rd strike can be very minor, relative to the first two. If all three were minor like this, then that’s another story.

While his charge is petty theft, because of previous petty theft convictions, the charge for drinking the unpaid-for soda was increased from a misdemeanor to a felony, the arrest report shows. In Florida, a third-degree felony can result in a sentence of up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

The trial of ex-vice pres. candidate John Edwards started today here in NC.

The charges carry a potential total of 60 yrs. prison.

I'm taking bets as to whether this soft drink thief or Edwards spending more time in jail.

I'm betting the soft drink thief.
