Overconfident Suspect: They can’t charge me with auto theft again, that would be double jeopardy!

Exasperated Attorney: That’s not how double jeopardy works.

This is… not surprising. I’ve read stories about people released after being arrested for auto theft who then stole a car to get home.

NM has a lot of small towns (and even some small-town papers!) where the “Luiz is back in front of the magistrate for ____ again, dear” is pretty common breakfast conversation. It doesn’t take a lot of people to have one who’s a chronic problem.

Socorro is fairly big as NM goes, but we have the paper and the “___ is back in court” celebrities.

I think that’s pretty likely, if he knew what he was in for from the get-go. Foreknowledge averts Greek tragedy ^^’.

ahem Yes, well, I’ll see myself out, no need to shove…

or, to follow the twitter meme:

Overconfident Suspect: They can’t charge me with auto theft again, that would be double jeopardy!

Exasperated Attorney: No.

I took the Bailiff’s wallet and went straight to OTB
I had a good feeling easy come easy go
I bet on one horse to win and your mother to show
And sure enough, that nag came in
Brought my ticket to the window and collected my win
And then I broke into my new car with a wire coat hanger
