Brickbat: I've Got Your Picture


A judge has sentenced former Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer Thomas Allen to 36 months probation after he pleaded guilty to taking photographs secretly of girls' underwear. Allen worked with the department's youth programs, and one of his jobs was to take photos of the youth Explorer program. While doing that, he secretly photographed some of the girls' underwear. He will not have to register as a sex offender.
