FILE - In this Oct. 30, 1978 file photo, Jack "Murph the Surf" Murphy, gestures as he emphasizes a point over the weekend to a group of teenage boys from Youth Hall in Miami who were brought to the prison at Raiford as a warning. 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)
