Former Oklahoma resident had unknown charge of felony embezzlement for not returning VHS tape rental 21 years ago

Court records show the charges were filed in 2000, saying she “feloniously embezzled” the video cassette tape “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” from a store called “Movie Place” in 1999. The store was on Lindsey Street in Norman. According to the county assessor, that business has been closed since 2009.

McBride says she doesn’t remember renting the tape.

“It’s very possible the young man that I lived with at the time did, but I did not,” she said.

She says over the years, she’s been rejected from five jobs, and now suspects the charge was following her.

“When they run your criminal background, it’s going to come up that I have a charge of felony embezzlement,” she said.
