In retrospect, going on the "Dr. Phil" television show to talk about their shoplifting exploits did not -- to paraphrase the good doctor -- work very well for Matthew and Nora Eaton.
The San Marcos husband and wife, who went on the popular show and trumpeted their moneymaking scheme of shoplifting toys and reselling them on the Internet, were sentenced to prison yesterday by a federal judge.

Dumas man on probation gets 20 years for fire
May 12, 2010
DUMAS, Texas � A Texan on probation in a drug case is going to prison for 20 years after setting fire to his probation office and swiping his criminal records.
A judge Tuesday sentenced 19-year-old Michael Chase Baldwin of Dumas.
Baldwin pleaded guilty to criminal mischief over the Jan. 10 fire. He must pay $829,000 in restitution and fines.
Prosecutor David Green says Baldwin was on probation for possession of a controlled substance when a storage building for lawn equipment was burglarized. Green says Baldwin then broke into the probation office, dumped gasoline and set it on fire.
Green says Baldwin had a probation department laptop computer and his own probation file when he was arrested.
Burglar arrested due to obvious facial tattoo A Colorado burglar has been arrested after being identified by a rather obvious tattoo he has on his face.
The tattoo on the upper lip of 20-year-old Anthony Brandon Gonzales led to his arrest last week in the home invasion of an Elvis impersonator in Pueblo County.
A witness told police that one of the invaders had "East Side" tattooed on his upper lip. Gonzales also has a "13" tattooed on his chin in the shape of a goatee.

Looking for love in all the wrong places
A dine-and-dash escapade went bad when two of the fleeing diners left their purses behind:
Lesson #1: If you're going to do a dine and dash, pick a better place than a Waffle House!
After eating $39 worth of Waffle House grub--I'm surprised they had the energy to dash.
You know it's bad when you're getting mocked in the media instead of called the victim.
