The old-school Sabrina: The Teenage Witch collection starring Melissa Joan Hart was a traditional ’90s sitcom. The collection ran for a complete of seven seasons (1996-2003), with 4 airing throughout ABC’s “T.G.I.F.” slot, and the final three airing on The WB.
The collection was a product of the ’90s, as have been video rental shops like Blockbuster and the like. Back within the day, you’d go to a rental place and choose up a replica of an outdated or new film or present…and generally you forgot to return them on time, or in any respect.
And now, one Oklahoma girl is feeling the long-term results of that. According to Fox 25 News, Caron McBride realized that she had dedicated a felony whereas making an attempt to resume her driver’s license in a brand new state. She reached out to the district lawyer’s workplace again in Oklahoma solely to be taught that she had an arrest warrant out in her title for forgetting to return a VHS copy of Sabrina: The Teenage Witch VHS tape 21 years earlier.
Do the crime, do the 21-year-old late price nice
The place she rented the tape from, the Movie Palace, went out of enterprise again within the mid-2000s (together with each different rental retailer on the planet). Despite the closure, the overdue cost by no means went away, and morphed into one thing a lot larger.
As it finally ends up, McBride doesn’t even recall renting the video within the first place.
I had lived with a younger man, this was over 20 years in the past. He had two children, daughters that have been 8, 10 or 11 years outdated, and I’m considering he went and got it and didn’t take it again or one thing. I’ve by no means watched that present in my complete life, simply not my cup of tea…Meanwhile, I’m a wished felon for a VHS tape…I imply, I didn’t attempt to deceive anybody over Samantha [sic] the Teenage Witch. I swear.
She didn’t even know the title of the present! Luckily for McBride, the DA’s workplace regarded over the case and dropped the cost. Considering VHS tapes are actually out of date and the corporate that attempted to cost her is not round, that looks as if the one acceptable end result.
Thanks to the appearance of streaming providers, we don’t have to fret about these pesky late charges anymore, and may watch Sabrina: The Teenage Witch to our coronary heart’s content material with out being charged with a felony. But nonetheless, I’ve a sudden itch to go look by way of forgotten packing containers to verify I’m not hanging onto any outdated VHS leases…
