An Orchard Mesa man who performed as Giggles The Clown and who was accused of sending naked pictures to children over the Internet will not have to register as a sex offender.
Under a plea agreement from the Otero County District Attorney's Office, by pleading guilty to attempted Internet luring of a child, six felony charges against 30–year–old Antonio Lazcano were dropped and he will not have to register as a sex offender.
Lazcano will serve 15 months behind bars, but he's already spent 227 days in jail so he should be out in the next 8 months.
Lazcano was arrested back in May in Grand Junction after a mother found sexually explicit photo's of him in her underage daughter's email. That mother says she's extremely disappointed with Lazcano's sentence and can't believe the district attorney's office dropped the charges.
