  • No, I can't say that I have. It would be weird though.
  • Not notorious, no. But I do know someone who raped a girl, and burned down a house killing the people inside.
  • sorry... typed in wrong box
  • I have worked on occasions for people that were quite notorious in their chosen not too solubrious fields.
  • At the end of my sophomore year, we found out that my algebra teacher was a con artist and had faked all of his information and degrees to get the job. He'd been there all year with no suspicion. He was a good guy though. I failed his class, but because the school district had failed in properly screening him, we all passed the class by default. It was pretty awesome.
  • He was my customer, He managed a Imo's Pizza Restaurant, I printed the Imo's menu's for him, I would talk to him almost every Friday. Michael John Devlin (born November 29, 1965) is a convicted American prisoner currently serving 74 life sentences. He is known for his confessed kidnapping of two boys, Shawn Hornbeck and Ben Ownby.
  • Brian Regan. . .what a loser. His timing was laughable. No sympathy at his trial in the wake of 9/11. He was arrested in mid-August, if I recall correctly, for trying to sell classfied information to Saddam Hussein for $13 million. http://cicentre.com/Documents/DOC_Regan_1.htm
  • Nope, haven't had that adventure. A guy in my freshman class in high school murdered his landlady and the last I heard he was on death row. Only knew him to say hi.
  • In the casino industry you meet a lot of criminals. One guy - Gary Tommasino, murdered his wife because she was nagging him about his ever increasing addiction to gambling. I dealt to him several times. Another lady, can't remember her name, worked for the state auditing department. Her gambling habit got out of control too - she ended up stealing more than 3 million dollars from the state coffers to feed her addiction. I never dealt to her - she played the slots :)
  • Not a friend. A colleague, more than 10 years ago, stood trial for shooting his landlord to death. He didn't become notorious; in fact, he got off rather lightly, in my opinion.
  • yes, a wonderful international fraudster, who is now dead (due to trying to 'con ' some russians in the 80's ). He was amusing, suprisingly honest, exceptionaly intelligent, and diddn't do 'widows and orphans'he did do Ken Laine of enron though, he always said the biggest con men were multinational chairmens, how true.He was consdered by Interpol to be their top target, yet by the time he died he only spnt 10 days ever in prison and that was on a phoney passport charge, I guess you could call him a gentleman criminal.His name was george, the rest is immaterial
  • Spaceball (I can't believe you've only collected 46 points for that question. It sould be HIGHER! It was/is a good one!) I worked with a fellow who was a mortician and it seemed he "did things" to his...what would you call them; not 'patients'. Anyway, it didn't seem to stop there. Apparently he was picking up women off the street and out of bars, taking them home with him, and "doing things" to them, too. At least one (if not more), he killed. And he'd jammed a telephone receiver into her body where it shouldn't have been jammed at all. (Incidently, this part has nothing to do wiht the topic, but he had set me up with a blind date with one of his siblings (Scale of 1 as good, 10 as bad - the date was a BIG 9!!). Fortunately, my fate did not end like the mortician's last date, or I wouldn't be here telling you all this now. I shudder to think of it!!) The undertaker was shot and killed while trying to run across the street from the police station when they were arresting him.
  • lol yea. A lot of them I are people I knew from middle school and High school.
  • All my friends break the law in some form or fashion... I do not associate with violent people though, and I hate thieves.
  • Nope. I don't know any politicians, priests or televangelists
  • Nope, nor would I be
  • No but I was friends with a few a**sholes.
  • my ex is a theif and a liar and has been arrested twice and been to court for these arrests multiple times.... i know how to pick em... lemme tell ya
  • Nope, Actually my friend circle is very limited. While being friend I always used to be very reserved. In that case how can have any criminal friends?
  • i have one. he is acually in jail and we are falling apart but i dont mind much... he was a jerk. my friends are rather select and so i am suprised that i do have a criminal friend.
  • My wife, she done time for failing to appear in court for a seat-belt violation! :P
  • Nope. I'm very discriminative when it's about bad and good people. I only make friends with the good ones.
  • My brother-in-law has been in and out of prison since he was 15 he is now 27! The 1st offence he committed was abduction (he actually kidnapped his teacher and kept them hostage in the boys toilets at school) and that is no lie!!! He is trying to mend his ways now he was last in prison 2 years ago for 6months for assault however he was protecting my sister! He and my sis have been together for 6 years now and they are very much in-love and although it doesn't sound like it she has changed him and he's mellowed out quite alot. But over all I've grown up in a rough area so I know lots or criminals.
  • Sho Nuff! Jesus had criminal, prostitute, and homeless friends. Why should there legal record matter?
  • ya! all of my friends are criminals
  • Who is not a criminal these days.
  • LMAO! If you only knew... Im related to a lot more that most too.
  • Yes, both my aunt and ex-boyfriend are criminals.
  • unfortunately, yes
  • Unfortunately, my dad is one.
  • Sure I work for the Government they are all criminals.
  • In real life, no. On AB, I don't know. I haven't checked their records. ;)
  • hm... i dunno....ppl that sell dope...weed...whatever... ar they criminals... AHAHA and the story about the joke about the hash under the floor was hilarious.. never joke when the police is in your home... lols
  • A lot of my friends are criminals and a lot of us are too. Wouldn't a criminal be just someone who broke the law, or is the some specifics to the term?
  • No. I don't vote, and I don't contribute to their campaigns or watch their speeches on television.
  • I bet I am on AB, you know there's got to be a criminal we talk to daily....now we just have to find out who it is.....
  • If you mean a true blue criminal like someone who's done time in the slammer then yeah. I work at my church with criminals who want to change their lives and I am best friends with those folks who are looking to become better people. I have never commited a crime bigger than pass a red light and get a ticket but I don't like to judge others since we've all had different experiences growing up. Peace!
  • yes. i have one friend who committed robbery 15 years ago. i didnt know him then ~ but he sounded like a very troubled soul with a tremendous amount of discord in his life. but hes made amends and hes a changed man now. i have a philosophy of forgiving everyone. i was disturbed at first hearing what he had done in the past, but after getting to know him over a period of a few years, i found him to be a very kindhearted, gentle soul actually ~ and he is one of the most talented, brilliant musicians i have ever met. it would have been a great loss for me if i had never been his friend.
  • Oh yes & have a lot of family who are. Like one said these days who ain't criminals in 1 way or another, just most of them haven't got caught for their dirty deeds or they had more money to get them out of doing the same thing most go to jail or prison for. Everyone knows someone who shouldn't be doing the things their doing thats against the law, they are just lucky they haven't got caught yet or they haven't pssd of the right person to tell on them yet.
  • Yes I am, and I even married one.
  • Not that I'm aware of... but come to think of it, my underwear drawer has recently been ransacked!!! Maybe it IS someone I know!!!!! >:|
  • Yes, and I think we're all criminals. I can honestly say that I break laws every day. Mostly traffic laws.
  • I *am* a criminal. As an activist, an organizer, and an unrepentant, unreconstructed, anarchosyndicalist revolutionary, it's my job to break the law on a daily basis. A good rule of thumb for an activist is, if the police and the State are allowing you to do it, it's not effective.
  • Yes, I am. Two of them. And still am. Both were union leaders from totally different unions who were tried, convicted and served five years in federal prison for having accepted bribes. I'm a business man, who had close dealings with some 21 unions. No union leader, including the ones above, every sought a bribe from me...and none was ever offered by me. I never had to, nor would. In both cases, I testified on both their behalfs in Federal Courts...to no avail. The business people who first made the approach, made the offer and paid the bribes were left off scott free...for turning states evidence. THEY were the ones who should have gone to prison...in my opinion!
  • I agree with you. However, when someone commits a crime like murder, rape, child molestation etc, they should be judged and punished by the court. I do believe in the system. It's when someone has served their time and is still being punished by society after making an honest effort to live a decent life, is where I have the problem.
  • Ummm, let me think. No-one who has been to prison. But who knows what they have been up to and haven't been caught!
  • ummmm, no! that would seriously jeopardize my career.
  • ya! criminals are not so bad but people thought that they are guilty people
  • My friends are not criminals. I know people with criminal histories, but none are actively living a criminal lifestyle.
  • Sure. But they're good criminals. Ya know?
  • No. I have to respect and admire my friends..that would be impossible with a criminal. I'm funny that way. I don't admire lawbreakers or cheaters or liars or con artists. Lack of imagination perhaps.! :)
  • No ! I do not hang with thugs ;-)
  • Naw, I don't go to church anymore
  • Well, I used to, but he was granted a pardon, so I guess he's not a criminal anymore.
  • yes, Some friends are former criminals trying to make a better life for themselves now.
  • Just my son-in-law.. and one of my brothers
  • of course
  • I have been through my Friends List - none of them have listed that they are criminals. But just in case any of them are reading this: Yoohoo!!!! Friends!!! Are any of you criminals?
  • prob...just dont know it yet
  • all my friends are criminals.we even "bumped"into one another recently at,uh,"summer camp"
  • i used to be. Oh, no big deal, just a few juvenile delinquents waiting to make it to the "big time". More like the "big house".
  • Yes,most people in AA/NA/CA have a criminal record of one type or another,I have MILLIONS of friends who are criminals. I don't have a record(yet) but most of my friends do.

  • In knwo many ( friends ?)

  • Do my kids count?
  • Yes I am....50% of all my friends have broken the law and been in jail
  • In my family you are either squeaky clean and pure as the driven snow...or..in jail. I am not sure exactly how that happens. Several children being raised by the same parents..and yet, they turn out soooooooo different.
  • I could not be friends with anyone who did acts which I considered fit to be crimes (if someone commits and is caught of a victimless crime I would be glad to help defend them) there are people who had commited no crimes who I would never be friends with because they do things that should be criminal.
  • Yes but they have all served their time. Just because they have committed crimes doesn't mean I would turn my back on them. I too have done unlawful things I just wasn't caught and then grew up.
  • Only if i had a weapon!
  • no misdemeanor offenders..
  • yes im friends with a guy that rob sonic
  • Fortunately not!
  • Im Italian and grew up in Staten Island. What do you think?
  • By law I can not associate myself with the criminal elemant. I work as an officer in a Max prison. I have seen some of Michigans most noturiouos go through our joint. Now as far as Misdermeanates yeah I have hung out with a few dui's and the like! If you ever waant to have fun go do a "michigan offender tracking: when OTIS comes up put in different last names. and see what comes up. One of them is a coworker of mine that left work anf drove out and shot and killed a lady!
