The skinny: Utah mom buys shirts she deems offensive

The price of decency

Utah mom buys shirts that she deems offensive

A mother upset about "indecent" T-shirts on display at a Utah mall found a quick way to remove them: She bought every last one. Judy Cox was shopping Saturday at the University Mall in Orem when she saw the shirts in the window of a PacSun store. The shirts featured pictures of scantily dressed models in provocative poses. Cox was told the T-shirts couldn't be taken down without approval from the corporate office. She then bought all 19 T-shirts in stock, for a total of $567.

Costly mistake

Woman jailed for not returning film

It was not a pile of late fees a South Carolina woman got when a video store owner said she failed to return a video she rented in 2005. Instead, she spent a night in jail. Kayla Michelle Finley, 27, of Pickens was arrested Thursday and charged with failing to return a rented videocassette, according to Pickens County sheriff's Chief Deputy Creed Hashe. Hashe said Finley rented the movie Monster-in-Law nearly a decade ago. Finley spent Thursday night in jail and was released Friday on a $2,000 personal recognizance bond, according to authorities. If convicted, she could face up to 30 days in jail and $500 in court fines.
