FILE - In this Jan. 28, 1968 file photo, Jack "Murph the Surf" is escored to the Miami Beach Police Station by detectives in Miami Beach, Fla., after he was arrested with three other men for armed robbery. Murphy, the famed jewel thief and surfer known as "Murph the Surf," has spent the last quarter-century going into prisons and telling inmates that they could still turn their lives around. Now 75, he asked the state of Florida to restore his civil rights despite the fact he spent nearly 20 years in prison for murder. The answer: No. (AP Photo, File) less
