If the allegations are true, this just strikes me as one of the dumbest sex offenses ever, and one committed by a criminal defense lawyer no less:
A criminal defense lawyer was arrested after a sheriff's deputy found him naked with a 14-year-old girl in a courthouse conference room, authorities said Tuesday.
Courts were closed Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day and it was unclear how Charles and the girl got into the conference room.
Though court proceedings were not in session, the courthouse was open for attorneys who might want to conduct other business in the building.
Why would anyone decide to sneak into a courthouse on a holiday and then commit statutory rape (or some similar sex crime) in a conference room? And of all people to do this, a criminal defense lawyer? If this is true (and given he was caught in the act, that's a pretty hard thing to explain), this is just a boneheaded crime.
