When given a chance, most criminals want to plead not guilty to charges and plea for less jail time for their crimes. Not for a Utah man who asked to “plead up” for more prison time.

Damon Conrow was sentenced to second-degree felony on a charge of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, heroin. He asked to “plead up” to a first-degree felony because he wanted a longer sentence in order to get off his heroin addiction. He said that within eight weeks of going to jail, he expects the withdrawal symptoms to ease so he can start having normal sleeping patterns.

The judge gave him one more chance to change his mind, but Conrow declined.

What was he thinking? A Lebanese man in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysian was a major tipper and a real fat cat. He had bundles of U.S. currency of $1 million in $100,000 and $500 notes. But, there is no such U.S. $500 dollar. All the U.S. currency was fake.

What tipped off the police was that he left a tip for a housekeeper in the hotel with a $500 note. When the housekeeper tried to convert it to local currency at a moneychanger, the housekeeper learned it was counterfeit.

The man was arrested and could face up to ten years in jail. This guy is a two-time loser. In 2005, he was charged with cheating over the sale of office supplies. Cheating or fraud carries a maximum penalty of five years.

Just an FYI for would be criminals, the largest U.S. note ever printed was a special edition one for $100,000 in 1934. Bills of $500 were last printed in 1945 and are now no longer in wide circulation according to the U.S. Treasury Department.

A Twin Cities Pioneer Press article, reported a St. Paul, Minnesota bank robber who robbed a bank and then decided to head to the driving range to hit golf balls. Frazier Eugene Turner, age 50, admitted he robbed a teller at the TCF Bank in a Cub Foods back in July. He robbed the bank with a golf shoe cleat tool hidden in a newspaper making it look as though he had a gun.

Turner told police that he lost his job in February and was having money troubles. In fact, his money troubles included a $3,500 gambling debt. He got away with only $600 from the bank. He took $30 from the robbery to fill up his van with gas and hid the remaining money in a zippered pocket of his golf bag.

Turner is no stranger to the law. He has two prior convictions in state court. In 1996, he was sentenced to a year and 25 days in the Hennepin County workhouse after being found guilty of fifth-degree assault in Hennepin County. Three years before that, he was sentenced to 21 months in prison for second-degree criminal sexual conduct. This time Turner could face up to 20 years in prison.

If you are short of cash and want to smoke pot, what do you do? Grow it at home of course! But be careful, you just may set your home on fire. According to the Minnesota Sun, an Eagan, Minnesota man was short of cash to buy his stash so he decided to grow it at home.

Ryan James Parranto age 31 is facing two felony drug charges that include two counts of fifth-degree controlled substance crime. Parranto lives in a four-unit townhome complex. He decided to grow pot in his bedroom. However, a power inverter plugged into a grow lamp overheated and started the fire. Luckily, the fire didn’t spread to the other three units but was only contained in his bedroom.

Firefighters found a grow lamp and four small cups of dirt in a closet along with two plants suspected to be marijuana plants hanging upside down to dry in the attic. Police found an ashtray containing marijuana, several grocery bags containing marijuana stems, buds and leaves and rolling papers.

In these tough times, maybe Parranto should have quit his pot smoking habit. Because, now he has a larger bill to pay.
