What's In A Name?

Yesterday, the Indiana Court of Appeals affirmed the conviction of a defendant who, as a jail inmate, had possessed a "shank." The defendant claimed that he needed the sharp object for self-protection as he had been subject to three prior inmate assaults. The object had been discovered in an inspection initiated because he was not wearing prison-issued underwear.

The defendant's name is Random Justice Phillips. (Mike Frisch)
