365 Weird Criminal Law Stories by Leonard Birdsong Book Review

This time the professor uses his expertise and experience in criminal law to bring forth his “365,” weird criminal law stories for each day of the year. This is his funniest volume of criminal law stories mostly from around the States to date. This book covers more than a lot of silly and unlawful conduct one could imagine. Full of his witty “Birdsong” commentary and observations the book is sure to deliver some great laughs. There’s a story about the 54-year-old man who attempts to perform an exorcism on his 80-year-old girlfriend to get the devil out of her; a story about a Czech man who uses a chain saw to slice his way back into a restaurant after closing time; a story of an alleged child pornographer caught downloading child porn on his phone while being question at police headquarters; a story about a Tennessee man who had a stroke who thought he was dying confessed to a 1977 murder – he didn’t die and now is facing a murder charge; a “drunken dummy” or two; and a wide variety of just plain, stupid criminals that make this anthology worth reading.

My Review

Disclosure: I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

You can’t help but wonder about people while reading 365 Weird Criminal Law Stories. I mean, really, what does someone do with a 250 stolen pumpkin anyway?

When it comes to the bizarre things people try to get away with, Leonard Birdsong’s latest addition to his strange true crime collection doesn’t disappoint. The book shares a short story of dimwitted antics from around the world for every day of the year. If you can’t stand waiting from day to day, it’s a quick, fun read that will have you shaking your head, again and again.

Having read Weird Criminal Law Stories Volume VI, I did recognize a couple stories that were revisited, but this latest installation compacts the ridiculous tales for a quick chuckle. I enjoyed reading all these stories, and look forward to the next book.
