Achin’ in Aspen

Witnesses called police in Aspen, Colo., after observing a man following two teen girls around, trying to take photos up their skirts with his cell phone. The girls, aged 14 and 15, tried to run away from the man, but he kept following them. Police caught Stephen Moore, 22, and had him in handcuffs, but he ran — and knocked over a 9-year-old boy, who hit the sidewalk face-first; he suffered several broken teeth, a gash in his forehead, and a possible broken wrist. Moore was recaptured, and pleaded guilty to felony stalking, invasion of privacy for sexual gratification, and a felony count of child abuse causing great bodily harm for hurting the boy. Moore listed his occupation as former go-go dancer at a gay bar in his native Oklahoma. Moore faces up to 14 years in prison. (RC/Aspen Times) ...Or what he calls “Another long gay go-go gig.”
