A Pervert With A Very Specific Fetish

Fabian Michael Sims knows what he wants, and it's not just a do-over on his first name.

What he wants is, to be sure, nothing too fancy: He wants a) a woman b) with two kids c) bending over d) in the kid's section of a bookstore. He'll take it from there, if those four criteria are met.

And where he'll take it is fingerbanging that unsuspecting woman, because it's so easy to get away with that in a publilc bookstore.

The Fort Bend County district attorney's office says Sims has been sentenced to five years in prison for twice doing what's described, once in a Half-Price Books and once in a Barnes & Noble.

"Sexual Assault doesn't require sexual intercourse," prosecutor Alex Foley said. "The defendant violated these women both physically and emotionally, and although the healing process can now begin for these brave women, their lives will never be the same."

The second-degree felony sexual-assault charges had a punishment range of two to 20 years in prison. In testimony, the DA's office said, Sims said "he had a similar run-in with law enforcement in April 2005 involving similar allegations of inappropriate touching at a retail store."

So maybe he doesn't have a completely one-track mind. Just a sick one.
