In general, sex makes people stupid — why else would anyone get it on with a complete stranger and not bother with protection? But there must be something in the water these days, because lately people are acting especially idiotic about intercourse.
A 31-year-old sex-offender in Arizona posed as a 12-year-old to enroll in several schools. Apparently this guy looks really young for his age, because he pulled off this stunt for two years. Neil Havens Rodreick II was sentenced to 70.5 years in prison yesterday. [AP]
A commercial helicopter pilot who joined the mile high club while he was the pilot has lost his flying license. David Keith Martz was videotaped in a sex act (with an adult film actress) while flying over San Diego in 2005, and the video hit the internet last year. Martz will be able to reapply for his license next year. [SignOnSanDiego.com]
A 15-year New York Police Department veteran who tested positive for cocaine in 2006 isn’t getting his job back even though he swears he didn’t do the drug. Jon Goldin sued last year after a NY state appeals court rejected the NYPD’s use of hair to test cops for illegal drug use. His lawsuit said the positive test was a result of “passive ingestion” from performing oral sex on his then-girlfriend, who later admitted to Goldin that she was a regular cocaine user. We don’t understand how cocaine could go from his girlfriend’s privates to his body unless she had sprinkled a white powder down her drawers. [NY Daily News]
