New Hampshire burglarly suspect framed.
A CASE EVEN THE STATE ATTORNEYS OFFICE COULD WIN.
Ever wonder why criminal defense attorneys drink? Because we have clients like this genius.
Timothy Dufield of New Hampshire, age 37,IQ same, was arrested several weeks back for burglarizing a Concord hair salon. When the cops arrived at "The Long and Short of It," Dufield attempted to flee by diving through a closed back window. As you can see from the picture, he did not succeed. Bleeding and wedged inside the 9-by-15-inch window frame, Dufield was rescued by Concord firefighters and later booked into the local lockup on a felony burglary rap.
Because we live in Miami, we are a little suspect of this evidence. Notice how our hero is handcuffed while in the window? We are just a little suspicious that the police staged this photo to help the case. Not that something like that ever happens in our fair city, but still….
