You probably would not be too surprised to learn that the vast majority of people in the Texas Department of Public Safety's sex offender list are male.
And most are not good-looking.
But there are females on there, too. Most of them are not good-looking, true, but who takes a good mugshot besides Tom DeLay?
We combed through 15 of the biggest counties in Texas and came up with the ten hottest women in the database. Warning: In some cases, we picked out the best of a series of mugshots. Alternative choices were starkly different. So click on each link before you send any marriage proposals.
(Note: A lot of people riled up; in case you don't read the comments we posted this in response:
I can understand how some people might react to this. On the other hand, it's a way of getting readers to look at the info, maybe get them to realize there are people out there like this and they all don't look like the obvious stereotypical pervert.
It's understood not everyone will agree.)
