The Washington Post: Jailhouse Rock contest winners selected
You can lock it up — the winner of The Crime Scene’s first-ever contest, in which the Post asked readers to create a five-song playlist of tunes an FBI agent might put on an inmate’s iPhod, has been selected.
The Washington Post selected two, but they were on the same team.
After considering all the entries — without paying mind to who sent what — the Post selected the entry from Steve Levin and Michael Leotta (click the links below to hear the tracks on another web site):
· Somebody’s Watching Me — Rockwell
· Every Breath You Take — The Police
· Gee, Officer Krupke — Leonard Bernstein (from West Side Story)
· I’m Getting Nothin’ for Christmas — Sid Tepper and Roy C. Bennett
· Trial by Jury — Gilbert and Sullivan
So, who are these guys? As it happens, they were ringers.
Leotta, 37, lives with his wife and two kids in Takoma Park. He’s the Appellate Chief of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland.
Levin, 42, is a former federal prosecutor. He now works as a criminal defense attorney in Maryland and the District; he lives in Baltimore with his family.
Neither one, they insist, has ever done hard time.
Their prizes are coming soon. Thanks to those who participated.
