Where to start…
Well, the good news is there’s an outside chance that Thurman McGriff didn’t actually get a blowjob from a puppy. However, according to police, at the very least, he whipped out his penis in public and simulated oral sex, using the pooch’s mouth as the (ahem) pleasure center, in front of a 9-year-old boy.
According to court records obtained by New Times, police were called to the 1100 block of West Pima Street in Phoenix about 4:15 Saturday afternoon in response to a report that a man was exposing himself in public.
When police arrived, they found two witnesses — an adult and a 9-year-old boy — each of whom told police they saw the suspect (later identified as McGriff) exposing himself while holding a black and brown puppy.
At one point, the witnesses told police, McGriff “was using, or acting like he was using, his new puppy’s mouth to pleasure himself.”
Apparently, McGriff wanted a little privacy — when he noticed the 9-year-old was looking at him, McGriff yelled to the boy “[I’m going to] do this to you” if the kid didn’t stop staring at him.
In all, McGriff was booked on one count each of indecent exposure, bestiality, and sexual indecency with an animal.
Kevin Gausepohl, a 37-year-old music teacher at Tacoma Community College has been jailed after he allegedly convinced an underage vocal student that she could improve her vocal range if she stripped naked and performed sexual acts on herself while singing.
According to police, Gausepohl reportedly convinced a 17-year-old girl that her vocal range would be improved if she undressed and practiced her singing while sexually touching herself.
Investigators say Gausepohl told the girl that he was studying how sexual arousal could change a singer’s vocal range. The girl reportedly complied with his requests and participated in the so-called “study.”
Other students told detectives that Gausepohl asked them to be a part of his study, but they declined.
Gausepohl was booked into jail on seven counts of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes and one count of obstructing a law enforcement officer.
The teacher resigned from the school in October and states that he did nothing wrong.

Investigators say Brown entered the theater and sat quietly until about 30 minutes into the movie. That’s when he reportedly stripped off his clothing and then stood atop the chair he was seated in. He then reportedly turned around and faced the crowd, exposing his genitals to dozens of children.
Mall security officers arrived to the theater moments later and placed Brown into custody.
Brown told police that a woman invited him into the theater and directed him to remove his clothes. He also stated that the unknown woman promised him they could have sex and smoke crack.

The woman told officers that she had seen the man inside the store before, and believed that he shopped at the maternity store because of his “big belly.”
The clerk stated that Watson approached her, asked for her phone number and asked if she’d like to go to lunch with him. When the woman refused, Watson took his purchases to a dressing room and then called her over to help him.

The clerk stated that Watson kept asking her to look at him, however she refused and requested that he leave the store.
Once Watson had left the premises, the clerk contacted police.
