Jailhouse Rock contest winners selected

You can lock it up -- the winner of The Crime Scene's first-ever contest, in which we asked readers to create a five-song playlist of tunes an FBI agent might put on an inmate's iPhod, has been selected.

We selected two, but they were on the same team.

After considering all the entries -- without paying mind to who sent what -- we selected the entry from Steve Levin and Michael Leotta (click the links below to hear the tracks on another web site):

We bent the rules for the selection of the opera, about which Levin and Leotta cleverly suggested: "The whole opera is only about 40 minutes, and the listeners have nothing but time." We were convinced.

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.
