A Florida man was bound to go down one way or another. Either the carcinogenic smoke from his cigarettes, or the 14 felonies and 31 misdemeanor convictions he was saddled with was going to sink his proverbial ship. In this case, it was the 15th felony conviction for stealing $600 worth of cigarettes from a Florida convenience store that did him in and sunk his vesssel. The 48 year old man was recently convicted and sentenced to 20 years in a Florida state penitentiary for burglary and grand theft. That is certainly one way to define “habitual offender.”
