Re: Poor Garfield

Well, they have found the man who took poor Garfield's head. He said it was unintentional. He hugged the statue too hard and the head fell off.

If what he said is true, the sculptor probably did not do a good job. Now he faces jail term.

Man admits taking Garfield's head

23-year-old pleads guilty, faces jail time

The man accused of hugging the head off of Marion's Garfield statue pleaded guilty Monday in Marion City Court.

Joseph P. Savarino, 23, stood before Judge James Kocher as he spoke about the December incident, in which he claimed to have hugged the statue too hard, resulting in its head falling off.

"It was very unintentional," he said.

Savarino pleaded guilty to criminal mischief, a Class A misdemeanor, and criminal conversion, also a Class A misdemeanor. Each charge carries a standard one-year jail term.....
