Tennessee psychic David Marius Guardino was convicted yesterday on tax evasion charges in Knoxville Federal Court:

Guardino lives in Caryville and claims he is both seer and sorcerer, able to predict the future using a mix of telekinesis and clairvoyance. He makes big bucks in the soothsaying business, but Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles Atchley said he hid mounds of it from the IRS when filing tax returns for 1998, 1999 and 2000.

Omm... ommm.... I see his sentence! I see him serving 21-27 months in prison under the federal sentencing guidelines for a first-time offender, at a tax loss of $150,000. Mr. Guardino shouldn't count on my clairvoyance, though; my last sentencing prediction was sadly low.

I always have to laugh when I read stories like this. Why didn't he see this in his future???

Yeah, clairvoyance must not be what it's cracked up to be. Why did he do stuff he know would get him in jail? Also, he was arrested for attacking his wife when he found her in a motel room with another man. Why'd he marry her, knowing that was going to happen? Was she that good-looking?
