Who broke the law and went to jail? Hopefully no one in your family, but if so you just might find their name listed here. Of course not everyone who got in trouble with the law wound up in jail and some individuals were in trouble for little of nothing. Some of the incidents can be quite amusing at times. Let's look at some of the stories that made news "Between The Pages." I have the name of the article listed followed by a surname where applicable and date.
