"Attorney: Man Dealing With Poison Ivy, Not Masturbating"

A helpful reader altered me to this amusing article carrying the headline that I made the title of this post.  Here are the comical details:

A sex offender treatment supervisor for a Kentucky prison has been charged with indecent exposure. Charles Lickteig II, 48, is now on administrative leave from the Luther Luckett Correctional Complex in LaGrange.

According to court records, Lickteig had stopped his vehicle at Lime Kiln Lane and U.S. 42 when a woman pulled up beside him. She claimed Lickteig's genitals were exposed and he was masturbating.  She also said Lickteig looked at her and he knew she saw him.

Court records also said the woman later saw Lickteig at the same intersection and was able to get the license plate number to Lickteig's car and called police. Licktieg was arrested on Oct. 14 and pleaded not guilty to second-degree indecent exposure.

Lickteig's attorney, Alex Dathorne, said Lickteig was also a police officer for eight years. "So he's quite in tune with the seriousness of these allegations and also the embarrassment that goes with simply making the allegations," Dathorne said.

Dathorne said there may be a reasonable explanation for what is now a very serious charge....  Dathorne said his client was not sexually gratifying himself, but instead, Lickteig was trying to deal with a severe case of poison ivy.

Thank the vile feminist lawyer and its male running dogs for the witch hunt of the productive male. The feminist should be arrested for filing a false police report and should be sentenced to the prison term the male risked receiving. If the male running dogs of the feminist in the police refuse to protect the public, let the falsely accused sue the police for everything they have.

If that law suit fails, the police, the accuser and the judges should be placed on an internal enemies boycott list. No service or product provider should serve these. To deter.

This is an embarrassing situation yet there is still the reason for it. Things were blown out of proportion. Thanks a lot for saying his reasons. We should give them the benefit of the doubt.

Our actions must be coupled with enough responsibility especially if we are in public. What happened was just a mistake or maybe he has his reasons that we don't know. this is just a lesson to learn from. thanks a lot for the reminder that we have to be very careful with our actions.
