Violent creeps, pedophiles and morons, here are 25 people who made our worst list this year. By Pete Kotz.
24. Susan Cole She was hoping to avoid jury duty, since it would interfere with her jet-setting career selling anti-aging cream for Mary Kay. So Susan Cole showed up for her casting call dressed as an Alabama trophy wife pretending to be crazy -- complete with mismatched shoes, curlers in her hair, and enough makeup to build chemical weapons for the Syrian government. A judge promptly dismissed her.
She would have gotten away with it -- if she hadn't called in to a Denver radio show to boast of her cunning performance. A judge happened to be listening and ordered Cole tracked down. In November, she pleaded guilty to perjury and attempted influence of a public servant.
25. Edgard Dubon Edgard Dubon was prepared for the caper of a lifetime. At 3:30 a.m. in Darien, Connecticut, he dove into a large charity bin used by people to drop off unwanted clothes for the poor. If he was lucky, he would walk away from his epic heist with a complete wardrobe of plus-sized floral dresses. Perhaps even a Connecticut Huskies T-shirt!
Sadly, Dubon neglected to properly chart his getaway. Once inside the bin, he found himself unable to climb back out. He tried calling the charity for assistance, but no one answered the phone. Nor could he call a friend, since assholes who rip off charities tend to be short in this department. That left him one option: 911.
Despite being overcome by laughter and mockery, fire crews managed to use bolt cutters to rescue the dimwitted bandit. Dubon was charged with larceny and criminal mischief.
