The Joking Convict

How sick is this?

(Marietta, Ohio) So, this guy, who is in prison, tells a woman to send him some pics of a naked little boy. She does and the corrections officers discover them. Both are then prosecuted.

From The Marietta Times:
Angelo Santos, 35, had faced up to eight years in prison and $15,000 in fines for soliciting the photos, which were sent to the prison in late 2004 by Becky K. Smith, 36, of 95 Sandhill Road Apt. 4.

Santos agreed Tuesday to plead guilty to a fifth-degree felony charge of pandering obscene material involving a minor. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dismissed two related charges.

Santos' attorney, Rolf Baumgartel, of Marietta, said his client was merely joking when he requested the photos. He said the man is not a sex offender and not sexually aroused by boys or men.

"This was a very poor joke that went too far," Baumgartel said.
Ha ha! Some joke.

Becky Smith gets six months for her part in the scheme.
