A man was arrested recently and pleads not guilty to burglary, indecent exposure and illegal possession of a firearm.
Apparently a naked and presumed drunken felon took advantage of his neighbor’s unlocked dog door and squeezed his way into their house and up to her bedroom door.
The Mrs. was alone with her three dogs preparing for bed when she heard a knock on the door.
It was her neighbor in his birthday suit. He announced he was ready for sex. The Mrs. was not. After screaming and the threat of three large dogs, the intruder left the house.
Police found the disheveled unwelcome visitor sound asleep in his home, in his bed, alone and naked. They also found a .22 rifle under his bed. No word if it was as loaded as he was.
This may be amusing but the charge of burglary in Colorado brings serious consequences especially for a person with prior felony or misdemeanor convictions. A person commits burglary if they enter a home, building or any dwelling without an invitation or permission with the intention of committing a crime.
The man stated his intention was to have sex with his neighbor’s wife. That is not a crime, more like wishful thinking. But, by coming into the home naked is enough to alarm and outrage the Mrs. and that is criminal indecent exposure. If convicted it would require him to register as a sex offender.
About that little .22 rifle. The alleged burglar had a criminal record showing he had a felony conviction for robbery. It is illegal for a felon to possess a gun of any shape, size or fire power.
