The downside of identity theft.
Cops: Man steals ID of sex offender
CLINTON, Conn. — A good rule of thumb for an identity thief is not to steal the name of someone whose reputation is worse than yours — such as a sex offender.
Police said James Perry stole the name and identity of a neighbor who turned out to be a convicted sex offender.
For some reason, this reminds me of The Return of Martin Guerre, probably because it’s another great example of an identity theft that ends badly.
