Lingere store clerk to be labeled a sex offender

She did her job, and now the "morality of the state" makes her a pariah

Incidents like this are one reason why I am not fond of that phrase "sex offender."

An obscure law sends one local lingerie store clerk to jail. And now she may forever have to register as a sex offender.

The lingerie store, Somethin’ Sexy was raided by police last week for violating Lubbock`s sexually oriented business ordinance.

"I feel like I`m in 1690 Salem, Massachusetts and we`re looking for a witch to burn" says the store’s owner.

The witch: the owner of Somethin’ Sexy. He`s speaking out about the raid of his shop and the arrest of his employee. Now, if convicted, the clerk will have to register as a sex offender.

"I think it`s ridiculous. She`s not a sex offender, she was selling something that I had instructed them it was ok to sell, I think it`s ridiculous" he says.

She's forever going to be lumped in with rapists and stalkers. Once labeled, in some cities it will be impossible for her to legally find a place to live.

Extreme doesn't begin to cover it.

Hat tip Wren's Nest.
