Dennis Brown: Charged Only Because He Told Cops He Was Photographing Girls for Sexual Purposes
A man was taking pictures near Tyler's Rose Rudman Trail and at Robert E. Lee High School recently, and even though he was creeping out locals by mostly shooting young women, there wasn't much cops could do about it.
The locale was a public area, after all, so it wasn't like he was sneaking around bathroom windows.
But "How to Be Interrogated 101" apparently isn't a part of Dennis Brown's college curriculum, if what cops tell the Tyler Telegraph is true.
When officers asked Brown what he was doing, he didn't say, "Just practicing with my Nikon" or whatever.
Tyler Police Chief Gary Swindle said Brown was charged after initial questioning into his actions.
"He told officers on video that he was taking the photos of women on the trail, high school girls, and girls playing volleyball, for his own sexual gratification, so that is why he was charged. Without that admission we would not have a case because anyone can take pictures out in public," [Swindle] said.
