Oh and check out the comments:
"Is it just me, or does anyone else secretly admire this man? I'm not suggesting we should all go out and kill the people we don't like, but if society made sure paedophiles were always given the death penalty, then he wouldn't have had anyone to kill. Surely our anger should be directed towards the paedophiles."
"Now had the offenders been put away for life, this article would never have been written.In my opinion sex offenders can never be cured/rehabilitated. Surely if they were cured, they would still be so haunted and repulsed by the pain inflicted on their victims, they wouldn't have the will to carry on living."

A friend of my sister is on the offender list.
Just out of college, she went to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Got drunk, flashed her boobs at the crowd on Bourbon Street. Got arrested, charged & convicted of a sex offense.
Now she can't pick up her kids from school.
We have gone too far.
The comments in the dailymail site are of a certain quality.

And that quality is... bad?

xampl, that's amazing since everybody does that there.
One note, what she did is not pedophilia, nor is having sex with your girlfriend in high school. Pedophilia refers to sex with pre-pubescent children, not teens. Nor does it have anything to do with flashing one's tits, dick or ass.

By the way, I dated teen girls when I was a teen boy and a lot of them are a pain in the ass.
If I could give advice to myself at 18, it would be to skip everyone under 24 and preferably start in dating and banging the 30 yr olds as soon as I turned 18, way more enjoyable and fun.

"xampl, that's amazing since everybody does that there."
So amazing that I don't believe it.
More to the story?

Don't want to blow his cover, but it would help to have details since if this can be verified I'll certainly bring it up in conversations about abusive laws. I tried to find reports of such a case by googling but haven't found one yet. If it happened once, surely it happened many times, so I should be able to find something.

"charged & convicted of a sex offense."
That's the part that's not believable, not the tit-flashing.
Your sister's friend is bullshitting.

Louisiana Law says:
(24)(a) "Sex offense" means deferred adjudication, adjudication withheld, or conviction for the perpetration or attempted perpetration of or conspiracy to commit human trafficking when prosecuted under the provisions of R.S. 14:46.2(B)(2) or (3), R.S. 14:46.3 (trafficking of children for sexual purposes), R.S. 14:78 (incest), R.S. 14:78.1 (aggravated incest), R.S. 14:89 (crime against nature), R.S. 14:89.1 (aggravated crime against nature), R.S. 14:89.2(B)(3) (crime against nature by solicitation), R.S. 14:80 (felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile), R.S. 14:81 (indecent behavior with juveniles), R.S.14:81.1 (pornography involving juveniles), R.S. 14:81.2 (molestation of a juvenile or a person with a physical or mental disability), R.S. 14:81.3 (computer-aided solicitation of a minor), R.S. 14:81.4 (prohibited sexual conduct between an educator and student), R.S. 14:92(A)(7) (contributing to the delinquency of juveniles), R.S. 14:93.5 (sexual battery of the infirm), R.S. 14:106(A)(5) (obscenity by solicitation of a person under the age of seventeen), R.S. 14:283 (video voyeurism), R.S. 14:41 (rape), R.S. 14:42 (aggravated rape), R.S. 14:42.1 (forcible rape), R.S. 14:43 (simple rape), R.S. 14:43.1 (sexual battery), R.S. 14:43.2 (second degree sexual battery), R.S. 14:43.3 (oral sexual battery), R.S. 14:43.5 (intentional exposure to AIDS virus), or a second or subsequent conviction of R.S. 14:283.1 (voyeurism), committed on or after June 18, 1992, or committed prior to June 18, 1992, if the person, as a result of the offense, is under the custody of the Department of Public Safety and Corrections on or after June 18, 1992. A conviction for any offense provided in this definition includes a conviction for the offense under the laws of another state, or military, territorial, foreign, tribal, or federal law which is equivalent to an offense provided for in this Chapter, unless the tribal court or foreign conviction was not obtained with sufficient safeguards for fundamental fairness and due process for the accused as provided by the federal guidelines adopted pursuant to the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006.
She was convicted under the video voyeurism clause.
Yeah, I know women do it, like thousands each year, maybe even tens of thousands.
(As that blog shows though, quite a few are under age, I don't recommend clicking on that, NSFPP.)
Also I know flashing is probably illegal in LA, it is in most states, though not all (In Maine and I think NY women can go topless, depending on the city.)
Just trying to find where they have ever arrested a woman for it and put her on the offenders list.
The claimed Video voyeurism charge doesn't fit the crime at all - that's where you photograph someone without consent for a lewd purpose. She wasn't photographing herself so this charge doesn't fit.

I thought that's what women were supposed to do in New Orleans during the Mardi-Gras parade. That's how they get more beads.

This is the New Orleans PD. The folks who shot refugees during Katrina, and have been voted one of the most corrupt police forces in America. They can charge anyone with anything remotely plausible, and the assembly-line court system will accept it.

In case people don't realize how the judicial system works in the USA, it goes like this.
Someone gets arrested for flashing their boobs and charged with public indecency. They get lined up in front of a judge and told, "Be a good citizen, just plead guilty to this little misdemeanor charge, pay a fine and you're free to go. But if you contest the charge and plead not guilty, you will be wasting the court's time and we will throw the book at you." What they don't tell them is that by pleading guilty they will get registered as a sex offender.
This story happens to loads of people all the time.

What you guys are saying DOES in fact happen all the time exactly as you say, I know people railroaded exactly this way. Court has NO case at all, but the person is given a "public defender" who works for the prosecution and tells them "plead guilty to a single charge reduced from the slew of absurd and inapplicable charges we pulled out of our asses, or we will fuck you over since you can't afford a real attorney". So they do and then lose their kids, get labelled as sex offenders, etc. In the future they find they now have a "strike" and soon are an habitual offender.
If you have $5000 is the bank though you can hire a real attorney and get the charges instantly dismissed because they are bullshit and no prosecutor will take them to trial. As a result, poor people and minorities and up with huge criminal records, and the well off never get prosecuted at all.
