Woman faces felony charge for not returning rented VHS two decades ago

A former Oklahoma resident has an active warrant for a felony embezzlement charge for failing to return a rented VHS tape in 2000. Caron McBride, 52, said she had thought the tape was rented by a roommate. She found out about the charge when she tried to change her name after her marriage last year. She also said that because of the charge she perhaps lost out on many job opportunities.

Pretty sure the statute of limitations for not returning a video is less than 2 decades, plus the compaintant no longer exists. 🤡🌍

If the picture of the tape shown is the actual tape in the story, it looks like it was copied which would be a copyright infringement. I don't remember the FBI warnings at the beginning of those tapes but there were huge fines and imprisonment threats. Perhaps the video store owner should be lawyering up too.

These charges are an obvious abuse of law enforcement Authority, anyone bringing this type of charges is obviously guilty of selective enforcement and persecution

Felony embezzlement is a bit of a reach! They should just give her a small fine and stop being so petty.
