A (Criminal) Record Deal

by | 8th, January 2004

‘SINCE, it seems, everyone is entitled to an audition to be a singing star, James Reid, 20, decided that he’d have a go.

He decided to launch his pop career when he appeared before Circuit Judge Annette A. Eckert in Belleville, Louisiana, and sang a gospel-oriented hymn.

In the spirit of Fame Academy, he’d even written the tune himself.

”God has changed that man. I’m doing the best I can,” sang Reid.

Although Judge Eckert gave Reid credit for the song and his decent attitude, he rewarded his crime with a 12-year custodial sentence.

A captive audience awaits.’
