Texas woman charged with 20-year-old felony

Caron McBride, a former Oklahoma resident living in Texas faced a charge of a felony for not returning a VHS tape for over 20 years. McBride had not returned “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” to a movie rental store located in Norman in 1999, as per CBS news. 

McBride informed the Oklahoma station KOKH-TV that she was acquainted with her charges in Cleveland County when she tried to change her name on account of her marriage in Texas. “They told me I had an issue in Oklahoma and this was the reference number for me to call this number and I did. Meanwhile, I am a wanted felon”, McBride stated.

According to KOKH, the movie place had shut down in 2008 and as per court documents McBride had been charged for the embezzlement of the rented property in 2000. McBride has not been able to recollect the memory of renting the movie and assumes that the act must have been carried out by an old roommate. “He had two kids, daughters that were 8, 10, or 11 years old, and I am thinking he went and got it and did not take it back or something”, she said. “I have never watched the show in my entire life. Just not my cup of tea.”

McBride also claimed that she may have been laid off from several jobs due to the presence of felony charges on the background checks over the last 21 years.

The Cleveland County District Attorney’s Office has dropped the charges after the appearance of her story on the local TV. The District Attorney’s office has also advised McBride to get her case erased for a clear record.
