Whatever you think about 73-year-old Theogil Cuttler -- and if what cops say is true, you won't think much of him -- he knows how to hold onto a dollar.
When a 15-year-old neighborhood boy asked the Webster man if he had any odd jobs for him, Cuttler said he could clean his home -- for fifteen dollars.
Then, according to court documents, he made the kid another offer -- he would pay him if the teen would let him give him a blow job. The price: Five bucks.
Five bucks to be sexually assaulted by some old coot. He probably paid in change.
The boy agreed, though. He later made an outcry to his mother, and cops arrested Cuttler. He's been charged with sexual assault of a child under 17.
