Woman Jailed Over Library Books

Today is strange story day, I guess.

This One says A woman from PA was thrown in prison this week after she failed to return three overdue library books. \”She does still owe us money; it is a violation of the crimes code,\” said reference librarian Jane Dougherty, who filed a private criminal complaint against Keller.

The books – \”Star Trek,\” \”Triangle\” and \”Fall of Freddie the Leaf\” – were checked out Sept. 14, 2000, and became due Oct. 5, 2000. A bill charging Keller $40 per book was sent Oct. 26, 2000.
