      A serious case of toilet humour?

Only in America…..A woman in the US state of Iowa, who is the butt of all jokes, has been charged with stealing toilet paper from a courthouse. And the most halarious part of it all, she is facing “potentially three years of incarceration for three rolls of toilet paper”, that even had the police Chief in fits of laugheter.

Yes, you heard it right, thats one year per roll of toilet paper. The state legislators apparenly really value toilet paper, they used to use poison ivy over in Iowa up unitl recently.

Suzanne Marie Butts insists it was the first time she had stolen the paper, but she declined to answer further questions on advice from her attorney.

The fifth-degree theft charge normally carries a sentence of less than a year in jail. But Butts could face more time if convicted under the state’s habitual offender law because she has prior theft convictions.

Butts, 38, was caught last week after an employee saw her taking three rolls of two-ply tissue from a storage closet in Marshall County.
