If you're going to steal the nameplate of a judge off his door, fine, have fun. But don't have a photo snapped of yourself holding the nameplate and then post it on Facebook, as Steven Mulhall, 21, of Coral Springs, Florida, is accused of doing, reports the Sun Sentinel. "The nameplate is like only $40, not that big of a crime, but what an idiot. He puts it on Facebook," says the local sheriff. "He's got multiple convictions for petty theft, so now this is a felony." Mulhall was on parole at the time of the theft. (Read more judge stories.)
