Wacky Headline of the Day – You Be the Judge [POLL]
One news source has the following: “Man flashes woman at bookstore for the blind!”
Leading one to believe what?
That if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear, does it not make a sound?
Actually according to this:, he may have a legitimate defense!
While not everyone at the Bucks County Association for the Blind’s bookstore is actually blind, which would includes one woman who claims she came across the bookstore flasher, and saw what she did.
The report continues that if the culprit is caught and puts on a defense, he may set his sights on a legal technicality.
Pennsylvania’s indecent exposure law makes it illegal to expose one’s private parts in a public place, or anyplace where others are present and the exposer “knows or should know that this conduct is likely to offend, affront or alarm.”
But because the man allegedly exposed himself at a bookstore for blind people, he could conceivably try to claim he thought no one would be offended. Maybe the man truly believed the bookstore’s patrons were all blind, and no one would ever see his dastardly deed.
That hypothetical defense may not matter, though, because the woman he allegedly exposed himself to was not blind. It’s not clear how many other bookstore patrons may have caught a glimpse of the man’s exposed parts.
How’d you like to be the jury on that case.
Be funny if the outcome were to be a “hung” jury!
