Following up on a recent blog entry, a jury recently convicted a man who broke into a stranger’s home and took a shower of burglary among other crimes.

According to a follow-up story in, jurors who listened to deliberation voted to convict the perpetrator who was found onsite in the homeowner’s shower when authorities arrived, having been alerted to the break-in by an intrusion detection alarm.

Jurors apparently did not agree with the defense attorney’s assertion that the perpetrator’s intentions could have been as simple as hygiene. They deliberated 3 hours before returning the guilty verdict.

The story notes that the perp could spend up to 15 years in prison.

“It was the costliest shower this Brighton Heights resident will ever take,” the story noted.
