Today's Doofus is from Florida.
Martin County Sheriff's detectives didn't buy it when a 48-year-old Jensen Beach man claimed that his cat was downloading child pornography on his computer.
Keith R. Griffin, of the 3600 block of Northeast Jeannette Drive, was charged Wednesday with 10 counts of possession of child pornography after detectives found more than 1,000 child pornographic images on his computer, according to a news release.
Griffin told detectives he would leave his computer on and his cat would jump on the keyboard.
When he returned, there would be strange material downloaded, the release states.
Griffin was being held in the Martin County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail.
Sounds like the Sheriff didn't buy his story . . . and neither did I! A Doofus, indeed!
I would put a smiling face beneath this post, but the guy's charged with possession of child pornography. There's nothing amusing about that, so instead I'll hope - if he's found guilty - that his stay in prison will be as long, dangerous, uncomfortable and hazardous as possible.
