In Newsome, England, 23-year-old Emmanuel Jerome was in the process of burglarizing a home when he cleverly pulled out his iPhone to use the flashlight app to help him see what he was stealing. Unfortunately for Jerome, he not only turned on the light, but the video recording option. After he and his cohorts were finished they made what they thought was a clean getaway. However, when police picked up Jerome a few days later as a suspect in other burglaries, they scrolled through his iPhone and saw the video of his previous robbery. The video was used as evidence and Jerome was sentenced to 44 weeks in jail after the judge told him, "Any would be criminals should keep this cautionary tale in mind. While it is always best to follow the law, if you're going to break into a home make sure you're not recording it on your phone."
