It's a good thing the state got its pound of flesh ... I'm sure he wouldn't have learned his lesson otherwise ...A Colorado man who claimed he was trying to defend himself from a mugger when he shot himself in the groin was convicted of illegal discharge of a firearm. Investigators say there was no evidence to substantiate David Leroy Blurton's self-defense claim and jurors convicted the 50-year-old Wednesday. The shooting happened at the parking of a grocery store in Dillon, Colo., on May 2009. Prosecutors say Blurton had been drinking.
