    Damn. I owe the library like 30 dollars worth of books but they haven`t done anything about it, it`s been years.

    I`m glad I don`t live in Texas.

    No, bestiality would be Arkansas, or Kentucky. Texas is known for it`s over-the-top laws. Jay-walking carries a 50 year prison sentence.

    "Well how is it different from going into a store and stealing a TV for 200 bucks"

    The fact that the books she borrowed got burned down in a fire that she couldn`t control might be the difference.

    First of all, she wasn`t thrown in jail for failing to return books. She was thrown in jail for contempt of court - failing to show up for her hearing. Same goes for failure to appear for any number of types of court cases.

    Secondly, just because the books were (allegedly) burned/lost/stolen/etc doesn`t mean she`s not liable to the library (the public) for the replacement of the books.

    She let it go without responding to the library and then the court, and these are the consequences.

    "The fact that the books she borrowed got burned down in a fire that she couldn`t control might be the difference."

    OK, so let`s say she was renting a TV from one of those appliance rental places. Same thing applies. Either she or her home owners insurance should pay for the lost/damaged books, regardless of the reason.

    A. Pay off books that aren`t yours that you`ve been notified about many times.
    B. If you have foundations/companies/whatever that can attest to them being burned then use that the first time, doesn`t do you any good when you`re already in jail.

    Yeah I`m from Texas originally too. However this story has similar ones for a long time since the 60`s growing up. She makes an agreement to take responsibility for keeping the books and returning them in the same condition she borrowed them. No matter what she needed to buy the replacements.

    read carefully now. She was jailed for not appearing for court. The reason she was supposed to be in court was for the $200+ in overdue library books. She wasn`t jailed for the books.

    The article says she claims her house burned down with the books and she can prove it. So why didn`t she show up to court and prove it?

    Huh? Are you saying that you are not surprised that (pick one)...
    1) a person that looks like her is in jail?
    2) Texans would likely jail someone with a that sort of look on his/her face?
    3) she would not return books, because of how she looks?
    4) she didn`t return the books because she looks like she couldn`t read and wanted to look literate by keeping the books so she could say to people calling her bluff that she does, in deed, have books that she borrowed from the library?

    or (finally)...

    Are you saying that, because of her looks, you now simply lack the general sensation of surprise about anything?

    By the way...

    TL;DR

    JINKS! Ya`ll owe me a soda!

    As a library employee, I can tell you it doesn`t matter that there was a fire, nor does it matter who can attest to it. When she signed up for a library card she agreed to take full responsibility for all checked out items. If she cannot return the materials, she signed her name agreeing to pay for them. Individual circumstances don`t matter. Anyone can come up with any number of actual reasons not to pay for unreturned materials. Lady needs to pay up and the rest of America needs to shut up.
