Well, if you had printed the exception in the catch block, you can see the reason for yourself.

But just by "eyeballing" (without running it), my guess would be because of an out of bounds exception.

That's the bit of code causes your exception. String index start from 0 to String.length() -1, and you pass String.length will result index out of bound exception.
