So I read this story
and just had to share.
N.Y. man charged in 2nd incident
BY COLLEEN LUTOLF
WOODBRIDGE — A Brooklyn man unhappy with the sentence he received for masturbating in public, repeated the crime before the assistant municipal court clerk on closed circuit TV last week, police said.
Reggie Frank, 34, had just been sentenced over closed circuit television on April 4 to six months in the Middlesex County Detention Center for masturbating in the women’s lingerie section of the Lord & Taylor at Woodbridge Center Mall, when he decided to begin doing what landed him in jail in the first place, police said.
“The way the system works with closed circuit TV is they can see and talk to him up here at Woodbridge,” Capt. Charles Rowinski said. “If they plead guilty, the judge can sentence him over T;, if they plead not guilty, they have to come before the judge [in person].”
Frank, who was being held at the Middlesex County Detention Center, had pleaded guilty to the lewdness charge and was being sentenced by Municipal Court Judge Emery Z. Toth over closed circuit TV, he said.
The court clerk alleged Frank had been acting agitated and was using profanity during the process, according to the police report.
“The judge sentenced him to six months and apparently the defendant thought it should be less,” Rowinski said.
After sentencing, Toth left the conference room and Frank moved off camera, police said.
Moments later, Frank reappeared on camera while exposing his genitals and masturbating, police said.
A criminal complaint was signed by the clerk against Frank, whose bail was set at $75,000 with no 10-percent option.
That's some funny stuff right there.
