Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I went into a sex shop because I was going to rob it. I pulled out my gun, demanded money, the whole nine yards. The clerk asked me why I was robbing the shop and I admitted I needed the money. She then offered to get me a job at the store if I would fill out an application. I'm about to fill out the application but I have a nagging suspicion that may be a mistake. Any advice?

Answer: Sounds like a great idea to me. Go for it, what do you have to lose? (Daily MailTeen talked out of robbing sex shop after being offered a job ... then arrested after he put his REAL name on the application)

2) Question: What would happen if I grabbed a lighter at this convenience store and tried to light a bag of beef jerky? 

Answer: Well, in short, some poor store clerk making minimum wage will have to try to put the fire out by blowing on it and, after that, you'll be arrested for first-degree arson. (Des Moines RegisterWaterloo teen accused of setting beef jerky on fire)

3) Question: I am a freelance embalmer, and I work out of funeral parlors. For some reason, when these funeral parlors have gold teeth or crowns from bodies to dispose of they put them in a bag to be thrown away or recycled. Is there any problem if I take these gold crowns that they are trying to get rid of and sell them to pawn shops?

Answer: Even though the gold is being disposed of, you could still get charged with "providing false information to a pawn broker." (Longmont Times-CallLongmont police arrest Brighton man suspected of selling dental gold taken from dead) (via Consumerist)
