The day the laughter died

sadClown.jpgOh “Giggles the Clown,” why can’t you just make balloon animals and squirt water out of your lapel flower while spinning your bow tie and trying to catch your falling pants? Instead, 29-year-old Antonio Lazcano wants to piddle little girls. Lazcano, also known as “Giggles the Clown,” was arrested in May on child sex charges. The mother of a young girl found a nekkid picture of Lazcano in her daughter’s e-mail account and undertook a sex sting, under police supervision.

The mom e-mailed Giggles and said she was a 12-year-old girl. Giggles said he was fine with this, as he had previously dated a 16 and 14-year old girl. He then sent web camera images of himself doing naughty things, and set up a meeting with the “girl.” That’s what led to his arrest. He was scheduled to enter a plea last week, but requested a continuance, so nothing will happen until late October. Under the terms of the proposed plea, some of the stiffer charges against him will be dropped and he won’t have to register as a sex offender. Not sure why the prosecutors are offering him such a deal, as this guy sounds like exactly the type of scum who should be registered.

On the plus side, at least Giggles seems to have the falling pants bit down. Ew.

I am reminded about a public urination law in my old college town that considers it a sex offense and after 3 strikes at public urination (public masturbation as the ticket reads) you are required to register as a sex offender...oh, to be a fly on the wall as i explained that one to my law school admissions under the ethics questioning...

Hmmm...stiffer charges, huh?!
