"Sex Offender Asks Judge To Let Him Teach Kids About Sex"

This is a strange request.

From WOAI:

Richard Martinez was best remembered in the boxing world for his articles at the Express News and La Prensa. He was arrested last July for sexually assaulting the 14-year-old nephew of a boxer he was writing a story about.

Martinez maintains he’s innocent. The judge disagreed and found Martinez guilty on Friday.

During sentencing, Martinez and his attorney approached the judge and asked for probation so Martinez could spend his time teaching children about sex. [emphasis added]

The judge apparently wasn't swayed by Martinez's reason for wanting probation. Martinez got 10 years in the slammer.
