Is it too much time on their hands….or something else?

Never any shortage of these items in the news…sorry to say.

According to this report,
an Eatontown man is facing privacy charges after admitting he hid in women's bathrooms for his own sexual gratification.

It happened at least six times this year.

The man, William J. Marsh admitted as much to the police over the weekend after he was caught by Sheraton hotel security shortly following several reports from female guests that they had seen male footwear sticking out from under the walls of the bathroom stalls.

Marsh was charged with invasion of privacy, criminal attempt to commit invasion of privacy and trespassing.

He was released on bail.

In another report , a retired corrections officer from Burlington County was caught taking photos under the skirt of a 15-year-old shopper in a New Brunswick store and is suspected of doing so on previous occasions, officials said today.

Harold Williams, 60, of Eastampton, was charged with invasion of privacy and child endangerment after being captured and held by a security guard shortly after the incident Friday, county and local officials said.

Williams retired in 2008 as a corrections officer at the Mid-State Correctional Facility in Wrightstown, the officials said.

You would think that having been a corrections officer, knowing full well what happens to sex offenders in prison would be enough to deter him from doing so.

Not so much!
Yet another in law enforcement:

A Passaic County police officer sent a 12-year-old girl explicit photos of himself in uniform and tried to set up a sexual encounter with her, days after meeting the girl while assisting her family in an unrelated police matter.

Woodland Park Police Officer Steven Vigorito Jr. pleaded not guilty in Superior Court in Paterson to charges ranging from attempted aggravated sexual assault to luring and enticing a child.

He was being held in lieu of $250,000 bail following his arrest while on duty Tuesday night.

Detectives posed as the girl and started exchanging texts with Vigorito….some in which he was exposing himself while wearing his police uniform and arranged to meet her for a sexual encounter, prosecutors alleged.

But wait, the parade doesn’t end there:

A 48-year-old Morristown man was arrested Wednesday night on charges that he had “sexual chats” on the Internet with children as young as 13 and also obtained and shared pornographic pictures of children under 16, according to court records.

Mark DeBiasse was charged with three counts of child endangerment and is being held at the Morris County jail in lieu of $150,000 bail, with no 10 percent option.

DeBiasse admitted in an interview Wednesday that he had accessed several social networking applications with his iPod Touch and chatted about “fondling and touching” with children as young as 13.

DeBiasse also said that while using these “apps,” he viewed and obtained images of nude children under 16.

DeBiasse then shared those saved pictures with others using the same “apps,” according to the detective.

Morristown Municipal Court Judge Michael Noonan set the bail with the condition that DeBiasse have no unsupervised contact with children under 16, including his own children.

While some may feel, rightly so, the punitive route is the way to go, would we be better served if these individuals were to receive treatment?
