    artc68 (09/08/06 1:17:58 AM): and will feel better once I know cops wont be hiding in ur house
    Well there were no cops hiding in the house, but Arturo still didn't feel better about it all.

    Arturo Chirino was worried about cops being in the house and about the news stories he saw. Guess he didn't realize that on those news stories... well, the cops are never actually in the house itself. Arturo showed up despite his paranoia as his obsession with having sex with a minor was too strong to overcome his worries about a potential consequence.

    Chirino was sentenced to what we call the "Long Beach Special", three years probation, sixty days caltrans cleanup, and lifetime registration as a sex offender.

    Contributor notes from Malibu Breeze
    Artc68 was a thinker. He thought he might be too old, so he lied about his age. He thought he might scare the girl if he moved too quickly, so he spent some time making small talk to make her comfortable before he made his intention to have sex with her known. He thought it might be a setup, as he'd seen such things on television before. But in the end the possibility that he could actually have sex with a 13 year old was too irresistible, so he soon found himself in the custody of the Long Beach PD.

    Artc68 was my first.... conviction, that is. Art Chirino received the "Long Beach Special". He will be subject to formal probation, registration as a sex offender, and DNA testing.

    Thank you to the Long Beach Police Department and the District Attorney for their work on this case.


    This is our 212th conviction since June of 2004 and our 91st conviction for 2007 so far.
