Claudio X. Pinto, who lived in Hermosa Beach at the time of his arrest in March, is due in court in Torrance on Aug. 21 to have a date set to face trial on a charge of loitering "about toilet to solicit lewd acts," according to a Los Angeles County District Attorney's spokeswoman.
Pinto, 48, was one of 18 men arrested by Manhattan Beach police when they conducted surveillance of a public restroom on the beach at Marine Avenue.
MBPD acted in response to a request from L.A. County lifeguards who'd noticed increased pedestrian traffic near the bathrooms, the same people returning, some bathroom visits taking more than an hour, and two and three sets of feet in bathroom stalls, according to Officer Stephanie Martin, MBPD's public information officer.
The arrests drew widespread attention when media elected to publish the mug shots of the 18 men and their dates of birth and city of residence. MBPD had released the information.
Leaders of the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center were upset that the police department had released the information and photos and that media published them, which, these days, includes circulation on the Internet, in spite of the fact the men had not been charged. They contended the men would be publicly humiliated, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The men arrested lived in Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Santa Monica, Torrance, Gardena, Hawthorne, Lawndale, Lomita, Los Angeles and East Sussex, England, at the time, according to police.
William R. Jackson of East Sussex, England, has pleaded no contest to engaging in a lewd act. He was ordered to serve one year of probation.
Prosecutors declined to file charges against Glen B. Sears of Los Angeles, citing insufficient evidence.
Who’s the last pic?
Hey, the MB Junior Lifeguards use that restroom.
And maybe if we’d let them marry, they wouldn’t be forced to to engage in unprotected sex in public bathrooms.
LOL! (I scanned all the way down to the last prevert)
Three guys couldn’t cover the cost of a room? A public restroom stall is somehow acceptable? Really? How romantic.
Yuck! Thank goodness I use the girls’ room. I pity you men who may walk in on something like this. Blech!!!
This sort of thing happens all the time, public parks, rest areas, bathrooms, these people have a mental disorder, period.
In College the university had to remove all the doors from the stalls in the mens rooms of one of the buildings because these sickos were constantly using the bathrooms for this sort of thing.. So thanks to their depravity if you had to pinch off a loaf in that building you had the honor of doing it so anyone in the room could see.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, I’ll “accept” homosexuality as normal, when I find groups of heterosexuals using public parks, rest areas, bathrooms and miscellaneous other places on a regular basis as places to have anonymous sex, or when the heterosexual bath house opens in my town where folks can go on their lunch break to have an anonymous hookup and return to work for the rest of their work day.
There isn’t much out there that is more digusting than gay public bathroom hijinks. These creeps are everywhere.
Bathhouse Barry is the perviest-looking of the bunch.
Three guys in one stall? Gotta be careful. I think the fire marshal could get them for overcrowding.
Maybe General Mills, Starbucks and Target can put together a fund to buy them rooms.
Were these homosexuals sucking each other or having anal
TMI! we are way beyond what I need to know
The article does not specify which direction(s) the feet were facing...
My atavistic side wants to say it wishes grenades were legal for cleansing purposes.
Why do they use public restrooms? Probably because many of them are married and cannot sneak the cost of a motel room out of the family budget. Also, they somehow know each other as far as they can see one another. They just need to be where the traffic is high in their kind.
The local homo organization was unhappy that their pictures, names and addresses were made public. What is it with these perverts? They expect normal people to accept them as they are, but they can’t seem to accept each other. They want to stay in the closet. Well, they need to find another place besides the toilet closet in a public restroom where parents must bring their children. Sick, sick, sick!
