"The 87-year-old man police say was soliciting an undercover cop posing as a prostitute will not be prosecuted.
`What would be the purpose in prosecuting him?` Kent County Prosecutor William Forsyth said Tuesday, Sept. 1. `He wouldn`t and shouldn`t go to jail and 87 years without involvement in the criminal justice system has, in my opinion, earned him a pass.`
Howard Arthur Klein, likely the oldest person ever charged with this crime, was arrested by Grand Rapids Police around 10 p.m. June 26, near Broadway Street NW and Leonard Avenue, not far from his home."
A gentleman who has lived to the ripe old age of 87 without involvement in the criminal justice system certainly deserves a "get out of jail free" card.
Let`s hope his wife or girlfriend is as understanding and compassionate as the prosecutor and doesn`t make the randy old codger spend any time in the dog house.
But he`d better swallow as many little blue pills as it takes, and give his spouse the ride of her life.
The old coot said he approached the undercover police officer because he thought he recognized her from church. Yeah right, the undercover cop was dressed like a typical hooker, what kind of church does he attend?
When you`re older than dirt you can get away with anything, you go pops!
