    I mean like big-time felon?

    I didn't exactly know this kid, but I worked with him and talked to him a bit at this one restaurant, we both were food-runners, this was about 2 years ago, turns out the dude raped some woman back in '00 at gun-point, then took 30 bucks from here, when he was 16 or something

    last week or the week before that, I saw him in the paper, how they recently stumbled upon his DNA, and arrested him at work

    crazy, he seemed like such a nice guy, guess not

    I used to work with a guy that is in jail for murder. We became friends because he was a Cowboys fan also. He was convicted of killing a man after arguing over a football game. The man and his friends followed him out to his car and confronted him. He pulled out a gun and shot him. He said it was self defense but obviously the jury didn't agree.

    Yes. I worked with several at a furniture warehouse. That's all they would hire because they got a tax break - except me. I was in college. Most of them were cool.

    Yep, had a class with a guy last year. He was in the Criminal Justice program and took a part time job as a taxi driver. He seemed like a good family guy. But I just found out this past school quarter that he was arrested soon after our class ended because he was raping women in the back of his cab.

    I hired this guy once who insisted upon being called "Happy", or "Hap" for short.

    Good guy, a little strange but pretty low-maintenance, got along with everyone. Never painted a day in his life before I hired him, but worked hard and learned quick. After a few months I found out..................

    Turned out he was jailed for 18 years for murder. Typical story. Got into a fist-fight outside a night club at 2:00 in the morning. Hit the guy pretty good and the guy died. One day he just disappeared w/o notice. I think he went back to the mainland or something.

    I don't know if it's a good idea that i reply to this thread :bang2:

    I grew up in a really bad neighborhood so i've known quite a few

    One guy got 6 years for counterfeiting money but died before he ever served a single day of it, this guy was my best friend growing up but he was also a hardcore criminal

    3 people i knew are or have been locked up for murder (Norwegian laws are a joke) i know one of them is still inn cause after he served his 10 months! for the first one he killed again and got 21 years, the other 2 i have no idea about

    There's also kidnapping, firearm offenses and some other stuff it's to much to list TBH

    I couple people i kinda knew are locked up in Brazil for money laundering they're really screwed to put it mildly

    I have met several congressmen at the gold course.

    I could nail a drive off the tee pretty good and straight. They always struck up a conversation - thats how I found out who they were.

    True story I will try to make it short. I used to work for a company that sold products in Home Depot. It was my job to ensure that our product was given proper shelf space in new stores and train HD employee's. I would often work with a temp agency to get workers to stock new store shelf's with our product. On a very rare occasion I picked up this temp worker and we drove to the HD store that was about a 2 hr drive from my office.

    This guy was HUGE and as we talked a learned a little more about him. One detail was that he was just released from prison for Manslaughter...lol. I felt more then a little uncomfortable for awhile but as we talked about sports and I told him I was a Boys fan he then told me that Larry Allen was related to him. I do not want to give anymore info then that. Larry paid for his house and was helping him with his wife and kids while he was locked up. I worked with him for a few days and always asked for him when I needed work done. He was actually a very good guy and yes I did verify that he was a relative of Larry's.

    More than I care to remember them all. I don't need to go any further than my own Dad. I told a small bit of his story on dcfanatic radio the week he died last October. dc posted the audio file.

    Whenever I called my Dad I always said, "hello you old outlaw." That's how he knew it was me.

    I actually know a guy in prison for child molestation. He was married to someone in my mother's fiance's family. I always thought the guy was a little odd and kinda handsy when I saw him at holiday gatherings and whatnot, it didn't come as much of a surprise to me.

    A guy at my church back when I was in college had been seeing my aunt. He was managing a maintenance crew at UGA...one day my roommate who was on Student Judiciary was telling us about how some guys that worked for the university were about to be all over the news for stealing and defrauding the university out of thousands of dollars, and it turned out that he was one of them. He had a daughter that was about my age (I was 20 at the time) that lived with him who had been homeschooled, everyone kept trying to get me to befriend her. I always thought she was kind of strange and not very attractive, so I just sorta ignored her. Well, soon after the allegations they both disappeared. 3 months later, his wife and the mother of the daughter found my aunt and was pleading for information about them and clues for where they might have went. It turns out that they had disappeared together a few years back and she hadn't seen either of them in 3 years. Something, uhm, "unbecoming" must have been going on between the father and daughter for that to happen. They never did find them, as far as I know.

    And lastly, my dad worked for a certain oil company overseas and his pal/partner on his major project at the time ended up becoming President of the company. Not saying he's a felon, but I'd say the odds are good of him being involved in some shady stuff.
