A man who has been accused repeatedly of tying to collect urine from public restrooms began serving a 60-day jail sentence on Thursday. Alan Patton turned himself in a day before he was expected to begin serving his sentence.
Patton pleaded no contest to a charge of criminal mischief stemming from his arrest last year at Sports Ohio in Dublin. Patton is also a sex offender who was convicted of rape years ago. In 2006, he admitted to drinking the urine of young boys and told police that he’s been doing it for more than 40 years.
When Patton was sentenced in 2006, he was banned from public restrooms, and on June 14, 2008, he again was arrested for placing plastic wrap on toilet seats and foam cups in urinals of a men’s room at Dublin’s Sports in Ohio.
He was convicted in September 2008 of criminal mischief for that crime. Judge Anne Taylor imposed the sentence on Sept. 8, 2008, but delayed sending Patton to jail while his attorneys appealed her right to order a psychological evaluation of their client.
The Franklin County Court of Appeals upheld Taylor’s sentence in March 2009. Patton’s bond conditions were that he was confined to his home and was monitored by a GPS tracking bracelet. He also was banned from public restrooms, libraries, pools, recreation centers or anywhere children were likely to congregate during that time.
The convicted sex offender starts his first full day as an inmate in the Franklin County Jail Friday morning. For Patton, it will be the first of 60 days in jail for his conviction of criminal mischief.
Now lemme get this straight…a former SEX OFFENDER gets 60 days in jail and they locked Mike Vick up for fighting dogs?!?! WTF is wrong with that picture…
