Boston Police Sergeant Edwin Guzman’s lawyer has a curious defense to Guzman sending a photo of his penis to the sixteen-year-old daughter of a friend: “You can’t tell me someone her age has never seen a picture of a penis on the Internet.” Hmmm, even if it were true, it is hard to see that particular approach resonating with a judge or jury.
Guzman is charged with “annoying and accosting a person of the opposite sex” and “disseminating harmful material to a minor,” which carry a maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $200 fine.
His lawyer, Kenneth Anderson, disputes that the photo was sent but added that, even if it was sent, it would hardly be a shock to a 16-year-old girl. The suggestion appears to be that it really was not “harmful” in today’s porn saturated world.
Your Honor, motion to quash this attorney. Or at least strike him.
