The Repeat Offender

Ah! An original by Stan Kegel.

The judge was disturbed.

This was the ninth time this year that George had appeared before him and the ninth time he was convicted.

It was always for minor crimes, shoplifting a six-pack of beer, pick-pocketing, breaking into a parking meter. And he always seemed to be caught with the loot still on him.

Before sentencing George, the judge decided to try to make him see the errors of his ways. “You should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself.” he told George.

George answered, “No man should be ashamed of his convictions.”
