Colorado State Lobbyist Convicted of Second Degree Burglary & Criminal Mischief

by Kristen Pavón

Ahh, it’s Friday, Friday and I have another gem for you courtesy of FindLaw’s Legally Weird blog.

Ronald Smith, a Colorado state lobbyist, faces 18 years in jail for burglarizing his ex-wife’s house. [Some background here: they were in the thick of a divorce and a custody battle.]

Here’s where it gets weird —

The jury found him responsible for placing raw chicken into the home’s vents, pouring bleach on her grand piano, and scratching the floors with metal cleats.

He put raw chicken in her vents?! Ew. Ew. Ew. Who does that?! Read more here.

Thankfully, he didn’t physically harm her. As a related FYI — October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Have a great and safe weekend, readers!
