Cincinnati, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) -- Chester Lee Hatton Jr., a 45-year-old Ohio Man was arrested after allegedly attempting to photograph an underage girl in a bathroom stall.
According to Springdale police, Hatton attempted to use his cell phone to take a photo of the female while she used the restroom at the Tri-County Mall in Cincinnati. He then fled the scene.
Investigators say Hatton returned to the mall June 20 and waited for another victim to enter the restroom. When a woman entered the restroom, Hatton reportedly followed - but not before catching the attention of a security guard working at a nearby department store.
Police say Hatton, who is a registered sex offender on probation, was found inside the women's restroom looking into the adult female's stall. He was taken into custody, questioned and then released. (Released?)
Detectives arrested Hatton three days and booked him into the Hamilton County Justice Center on two counts of voyeurism.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
I'm glad they caught this sick bastard - but I've about had my limit with the level of stupidity that seems to permiate our legal system. Here, a registered sex offender on probation is caught inside a women's restroom - yet they let him go? I want to know why. What stroke of insanity possessed the prosecutor's office to think they didn't have a reason to hold this man?
Sometimes our society's worst enemy isn't the perverts who molest our kids. It's a legal system that doesn't seem to understand the significance of this sort of madness.
