re: What is the craziest crime someone you know has been convicted of
So I'm going to keep this as vague as humanly possible because it's probable that someone might recognize me if I spill too many beans.

I was working at an arms dealership for a little bit of time until I saw that they were doing some pretty illicit stuff. Straw purchasing, selling stuff that they told me was illegal to sell -- and they were pretty cavalier about it.

So, two months go by and I say to myself: Yeah, this definitely isn't for me because while it might be normal for them, I had big plans and so I put in my two weeks and decide to get out of Dodge.

Well, I'm sitting in a pizzeria and some kid comes up to me and asks me if I worked at the location, I told him I did and he says: "I'm 17, and I have to be 18 to purchase ammunition (at the time), think they'll let me?" And of course, me being young and stupid I said to him: " shite yeah, I've seen way more illegal stuff."

So of course, this then leads to an extremely threatening text message from my coworker (who is now the owner of the business) and...their highly coincidental arrest for purchasing military gear -- from my roommate.

I was younger at the time, and the worst part is that I never knew what was going on. I was living with a soldier on base (illegally, but whatever, I had the required ID) and so I'm playing cards with these guys -- all of these guys (soldiers) who end up getting arrested for selling military hardware to the place I was working temporarily.

So I guess the tl;dr is: My roommate and his G.I. Joe buddies got arrested for selling military gear and my boss got arrested for fencing aforementioned articles and both were obviously convicted. Neither did very much time (I think they were both sentenced 90 and 100 days).

1. Former HS teammate shot a undercover narcotics officer. (While in HS we had a entire team fight at practice started by him...after practice he entered locker room with a gun looking for another guy. No shots fired then)

2. Former HS player I coached was hired and killed a mom and grandmother

3. Three other former students/players arrested for murder. Two were drug related a third waited for a local
business to near closing time, entered and killed lady owner in robbery

Maybe the strange part of this is I have always lived in small towns.

fricking the president's nephew/governor's son at a mall... I'm not sure the reports name her, but you can probably figure out the other party

He’s hasn’t been convicted yet but no way he won’t- went into a post office with a gun waving it around and firing it (no one injured) with basically what had to be pure intent to be arrested and taken in by the feds.

I’m old remember and I knew him from high school and hadn’t seen him in a long time. Smart guy and mild mannered (or so he projected), I and i think everyone that knew him from old was super shocked.

I have an uncle in prison for being the middle man in a huge drug deal. I think the street value of the drugs involved was around $3 million. He has a life sentence because it was his 4th or 5th felony conviction, and he had a bunch of guns on him. His wife's brother rolled on him and set him up on the deal with undercover narcs.

oh wait.

I had a friend/friend of the family get in trouble for some white collar crime.

He was busted by the SEC for layering. No jail time but a big fine and was suspended by Finra for a few years.

re: What is the craziest crime someone you know has been convicted of
Both mine are drug related.

1) used to sometimes be at the same parties as a dude (not a friend, he always gave me the creeps) who eventually went on to kill an old lady (80+) with a claw hammer so he could take what little money she had to buy drugs.

2) had a friend who is a great guy typically, but has become a drug addict. One time he ate a bunch of opiates and drank half a fifth of Jager and ended up in jail for kidnapping and beating the hell out of some girl he was seeing.

The craziest part of that is that in the many years I knew the guy he never once showed any sort of aggression towards ANYONE. The drugs fricked his brain 7 ways from Sunday. Very sad story.

A guy in my fraternity was a pretty big drug dealer. The feds found him and he ratted out his supplier. Went into witness protection, and no one has heard from him since.

When a trader makes and then cancels orders that they never intend to have executed in hopes of influencing the stock price.

I know someone who was arrested in a prostitution sting. Other then that its just the usual minor drug possession or shoplifting.

re: What is the craziest crime someone you know has been convicted of
I did get me too’d at my last job. A woman who was being terminated for continuously not showing up to work filed a complaint against me and another guy for allegedly running a pool as to who would sleep with her first. It was found unsubstantiated because I didn’t do that shite.

But layering is definitely something I would think to do and not imagine that it was illegal.

when I was right out of college I got "reverse-Metood"

Someone put a playboy on my desk and someone else saw it and told HR that I was being harassed.

In hindsight should have said I was. But really didn't think much about it.

Interesting. Was it some kind of a joke or was there a larger plot there?

a joke.

The person who did it was pretty high up and nothing came of it because I said I wasn't embarrassed or threatened.

I was young and not really thinking/was so busy wanted to get back to my desk. I should have said I was emotionally distraught. Would have worked well.
