Bama Teabagger Reaches Plea Agreement; Pleads Guilty to Two Counts of Obscenity
The only real positive for Downing? He doesn't have to register as a sex offender.
Does that seem like an appropriate penalty to y'all?
A bit of editorializing from me.
I think Downing was stupid and too old to do what he did, but putting him in jail for any significant amount of time is really, really dumb.
I know some of y'all disagree with my opinion, but he doesn't need to serve substantial time in jail for this. He's already lost his job and probably hasn't slept well since shortly after that night. He's also a married father. I don't think jail is the appropriate punishment at this point.
More from New Orleans later today.
