"I don't understand the charges. I don't understand why I'm being charged," convicted shoplifter and car thief James Jiminez told a judge after he was sentenced to four years in jail for swiping a $2,000 Balenciaga purse from actress Kirsten Dunst's Soho Grand hotel room. (He claimed he'd been allowed to roam the hotel freely because he was friends with the on-site drug dealer.) "I understand," replied Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Jill Kopnviser, "Because I presided over this trial and I'm familiar with all the evidence." [NYP]
