Being charged with a sexual crime is a serious offense that can have life-altering consequences. Sexual assault, sexual battery, rape, and solicitation are all crimes that can lead to being registered as a sex offender or even in jail time in some cases. With good representation, you can protect your rights and reputation.
On Sept. 16, a 56-year-old man was arrested by the LSU Police Department. According to reports from police, the man was allegedly looking under the stalls in a female restroom with a mirror. The man was booked on four separate charges because of the incident.
According to the complaint, the man had entered the restroom with a piece of cardboard that he was allegedly using to block the lower portion of the stall from being open. The person who complained waited outside the restroom to prevent others from going inside, and then was able to look at the man before he left the building. Shortly after the complaint, a phone call from a business on Chimes St. stated that they had a man inside who matched the description of the complaint.
According to police, the man fled when they approached. One officer was allegedly struck when trying to subdue the man in a nearby alley. The man was taken into custody, and police revealed that he had been both banned from the campus and known as a registered sex offender. They stated that they found a mirror on him, which they believe he was using to peep under the stalls.
An accusation such as this may come with serious consequences, especially since this is not the first time it has happened. If you’ve been accused of a sexual offense, be sure to know your legal right to representation to protect your reputation.
