Bozo criminal for today wins our first ever Bozo "Chutzpah" award. From Broward County, Florida comes the story of bozo Timothy Mitchell who was sentenced to prison back in 1985 for fifteen years on drug trafficing charges. Our bozo escaped from prison in 1987 and was on the run until 1997 when he was recaptured. Now, back in jail and acting as his own attorney, our bozo has petitioned for immediate release, claiming that if the state would give him credit for the ten years he was a fugitive, his sentence would be up by now. An appeals judge denied his request.
