Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My good-for-nothin' grandson stole my safe again, but this time he couldn't get it open and threw it in the river. This has to be some kind of crime, right?

Answer: Yes -- he could be charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief and petit larceny. (North Country Now, Edwards man charged for allegedly stealing grandmother's safe, throwing it in the Oswegatchie River)

2) Question: Is the White House permitted to Rickroll people on its official Twitter feed?

Answer: Absolutely. (FAIL Blog, Failbook: And That’s How The White House (Rick)Rolls!)

3) Question: I'm the 84-year-old mayor of a small town. Why does the city commission want to meet with me about some kind of weed growing in my yard?

Answer: Sometimes political enemies will secretly plant marijuana in the yards of octogenarian mayors to try to get them in trouble. (The Associated Press, Fla. mayor, 84, says 'grass' in yard was not hers)
