Charges were dismissed yesterday against an upstate woman who failed to return a movie back in 2005, Fox Carolina reported February 20.

Kayla Michelle Finley, 27, of Pickens County was arrested February 13 and spent the night leading into Valentine's Day in the county jail. According to the South Carolina Judicial Department, the case has now been dismissed.

This Examiner article covered the arrest last week.

Kayla had rented Monster-In-Law from now out-of-business Dalton Video, and failed to return the VHS rental within 72 hours.

Several efforts were allegedly made to contact Kayla, both by letters asking her to return the video, including a certified warrant sent in September 2005.

Kayla says she never got any warning letters, and was prepared to fight the charges against her.

This case should serve as a lesson to those who forget to return items to the rightful owner. Under South Carolina law, cases like this can fall under petty larceny, which is a misdemeanor for items valued at less than $2,000.
