I thought this thread was dead, thanks for all your help guys :)

New information:

1) I didn't want to say this because I thought it would out me, but it turns out there are tons of them all over the US. We were at a public, clothing optional park. It's at this gorgeous waterfront and it was totally empty. The other time we got caught at 2am in the woods. So if kids saw either time, I'mma go ahead and point to bad parenting.
2) In my state (I'm pretty sure) it IS a sex offender crime. I'm hoping that they'll knock it down though because of the aforementioned location and because my county is super, super, super liberal about public nudity. This cop was seriously an anomaly, that same day there was a festival going on where half the city was walking around topless (around children). Hell, I saw mothers walking around topless with their children o.O
3) I am not the Boston lady. That is way, way too early.


Also, gmreplay and Rock-N-Roll - you guys seem like the type who called other another kid's parents in high school if some girl brought a six pack of bitch beer to a sleepover. I am sad for your Sunday school to Student Government to law school to 9-5 lives :(

You really need to get a lawyer by any means necessary. This is not something you want to mess with. Forget about going to law school...if you are a registered sex offender, getting admitted to the bar could be an issue (which is also why schools will care).

This was your first offense (that the government will know about...speaking of which, you might want to delete any mention of the previous incident from anywhere on the web, including here). You're probably a pretty good student with a solid overall record if you're looking at law school. You should certainly be able to get away without this going on your record. This my be a little paranoid, but it's just not something worth taking any chances with.

And fwiw, I don't judge. The only real mistake you made was getting caught.

-warm enough to be nude at the time
-Nudist park
-on water
-liberal county in state with seemingly draconian laws
-some nice cops, others not so much
-festival with topless people

You may not have outted yourself, but you certainly narrowed it down. (still, no judgment here)

What did I do to deserve that? I didn't mean to become a firebrand in this thread. I just don't see this the way that you all do. I wish you all well, and best of luck to OP with your law school applications (sincerely).

Having a stick up the bum isn't a crime. There are many lovely people with sticks up their bums. And to be fair, he's probably right about this being more serious than some of us are making it. The sex offender roster ain't a great place to be.

Given the sex offender thing, I think the best course of action is to get a lawyer if you can afford it*. Keep in mind though, that depending on how long they decide to drag it out, there is a good chance that it won't be resolved by the time you apply (this fall, I'm assuming).

*Edit: for reasons unrelated to applications themselves

My bad, didn't see your other post and lumped you in with gmreplay.

You're cool, in a dad kind of way ;)

This is correct. The secret word is "erection".

The cop let her off because he wanted to hide his erection?

Two questions come to mind:

1) Who the fuck has so little self control over their erections? Was the cop going through puberty?

2) Why was OP staring at his crotch after getting busted for having sex in public?

As one ages they tend to become less egocentric and more empathetic of others. This shift in personality naturally makes one more aware of their community and society, and thus more mindful of the laws of that society (assuming they are just).

I suspect some might not see the world in those terms (yet). In fact, years ago I might have found the OP's scenario humorous and trivial too, but I've changed, and I don't think I'm now anymore uptight than anyone else my age. Which, by the way, is probably closer to the age of the typical adcom member.

"Aging" is not the reason you are humorless and uptight. I'd wager most 40+ year olds I know would find this trivial. You find this to be a big deal because you are an uptight asshole, no matter what your age is.

It took me years of training with Pai Mei to reach this point.

I feel like there could be a really good TV series coming out of this called "Erection Control."

I personally don't see a problem with what the op did given the revealed circumstance (a clothing optional park is hardly like "we were screwing by the jungle gym").

However, I think it would be a dreadful mistake to take lightly the possibility of being a registered sex offender and the issues that could cause with the bar in your state.

Personally, I would (anonymously not from your cell phone!) call the bar assoc. in your state and ASK THEM about a registered sex offender and C&F. This could be a serious problem. If not, great. But I'd sure ask because 'affording a lawyer' might not really be optional here.

That's why you find one of the remaining pay phones (it's probably near the YMCA) to make the call. Duh.

indeed. a "burner phone," as those Barksdale boys called them, is the only way to go in this situation.
