Odd News: Man alters fingerprints

AP story was carried in AZCentral . The story was also carried in Newsday and Nogales International. Guess the MSM missed this story.

Apparently a Jamaican man was apprehended attempting to come through the port of entry in Nogales, Arizona, in February. The man went to court last week. He was sentenced to 13 months in prison for surgically replacing his fingerprints with skin from his feet in an attempt to enter the United States illegally.

Sweet Spirits of Ammonia commented that this dilbert "gets the illegal prize of the week, hands down. Sorry!" Or, is it politically correct to say the "undocumented immigrant" prize. I prefer to say illegal.

After serving his sentence for illegal entry into the United States, the man will be extradited to New Jersey to face charges of money laundering.

And, he was also involved in more criminal activity. Illegal or undocumented? Illegal, of course!
