You've Got to be Kidding: Time for "Missing" Money

"H. Beatty Chadwick, 72, is approaching his 14th consecutive year behind bars, though he has not been charged with a crime. In a 1995 divorce hearing, a judge thought Chadwick was lying about $2.5 million in assets (his wife said he was hiding them; he said he lost them in a business deal) and locked him up for contempt of court, and he has been there ever since. News of the Weird first mentioned him in 2002, when he was closing in on the American record for contempt of court, which he now holds. Chadwick has never wavered in his story, and after an independent retired judge investigated in 2004 and failed to find any money, Chadwick's lawyer compared the 'missing' money to Saddam Hussein's 'missing' weapons of mass destruction (and also pointed to some Pennsylvania murderers who do less time than Chadwick has). [Philadelphia Inquirer, 12-23-08]"
This is why we don't have enough room in our prisons, and we have to let murders go early on "good behavior"? Because a man hiding money from his gold-digging wife even deserves to be in prison in the first place.


  1. good for him, but at what price? and did she even have proof he HAD the money or what?? Sounds like she was in good graces with that Judge!

  2. My pedicure place is located in a strip mall, right next to a frozen yogurt place!!
