One reason for overcrowded jails: overdue books
The library scandals continue with this news that a Wisconsin woman has been arrested for having two overdue books (Angels & Demons, White Oleander) from her local public library. (See this post for another recent library-related uproar).
The woman admitted to ignoring four late notices and two phone calls regarding the books. She was released after paying a $170 fine. The woman says she will keep the books.
