Talk about a panty raid. Thomas Williams, a 25-year-old Ohio guy, was sentenced to nine years in prison today after stealing underwear from about 20 women since 2006. He got caught in April, as he trolled for new victims on Facebook, and when the police searched his house, they found more than 300 pairs of women’s underwear! In the end, he plead guilty to eleven felonies, including nine counts of burglary and misdemeanor voyeurism. He’ll be able to apply for probation after four and a half years. [AssociatedPress]
Um, don’t guys know that they can buy used panties on Craigslist? But more importantly, WTF? Why does a guy need 300 pairs of underwear for, unless he’s building a ship sail or insulating his house? Still, this crime surely isn’t worth nine years of his life. Williams is in counseling now, so do you think he got what he deserved, or do you think it’s a tad harsh for an unhinged panty-raider?
