Oh the days of worrying about that late fee for returning a movie after the due date are long gone, or are they?

That’s what Caron McBride thought until she found out that she has been charged with embezzlement of rental property, which is a felony, for not returning “Sabrina the Teenage Witch”.

The movie was allegedly rented by McBride in 2000. She says that it must’ve been her boyfriend at the time who rented it for his daughters and used her name, because she’s never seen it.

McBride found out she had a warrant for her arrest for the felony when she tried to change her name on her license due to marriage.

However, the county DA reviewed her case and decided to dismiss it.

Unfortunately though, she will still need to get the case expunged in order to clear her record moving forward.

You certainly don’t have to deal with this kind of thing now when you’re using streaming sites.

What’s the longest you have kept something before returning it, like a movie or library book?

What’s the biggest late fee you’ve ever been charged?
