Toddi
 n.— «Another hurdle is a deep skepticism within the criminal justice system toward people who insist they are clean. “The paperwork is sometimes called a Toddi, for “the other dude did it,”” says Beth Givens, director of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, in San Diego, which provides guidance to identity-theft victims. The phrase captures the “culture of mistrust around efforts to clear a criminal record.”» —“But, Officer, That Isn’t Me” by Kristin W. Davis Kiplinger’s (Washington, D.C.) Oct., 2005.
