A new perv excuse

A Pennsylvania man is blaming his wife’s absence (she was out playing bingo) for his inability to keep himself from molesting two girls.

“My wife was never home,” Floyd Kinney Jr. said during his plea hearing Friday.

Kinney’s explanation did not sit well with Northampton County Judge F.P. Kimberly McFadden, “Some people, when their wives are not home, decide to do other things, like clean their living rooms,” McFadden said. “Your behavior is beyond the pale.”

…Records say Kinney molested one of the girls, now 26, from 1992-97. He sexually assaulted the second girl, now 17, for a year beginning in January 2005, records show.

…Defense attorney Richard Yetter said his client was not articulate and might not have been doing a good job of conveying his rationale to the judge.

And in what way could Kinney have spun that yarn and made it A-OK?
