Meet Arturo Alfredo Martinez.

He is a 42-year-old registered MALE sex offender that (somehow) posed as a FEMALE in an attempt to lure young girls into sexual encounters.

How did he manage to pose as a woman, you ask?

He didn't pull the Mrs. Doubtfire and get all dressed up like a nice maternal figure.

Nope, that's not Arturo's style.

Arturo went the Craigslist route.

He posted ads online in search of babysitting and cleaning services.  Then, when people replied to the ads on the phone, he changed his voice to sound like a woman. (I'm sure it was soooo convincing...)

Police were able to apprehend him when a felony complaint was filed, saying that he arranged to meet with a minor with the intent of exposing himself to her and engaging in lewd and lascivious behavior.

Not surprisingly, this isn't Martinez's first run in with the law.

(Uncertain if he posed as a woman for the offense that gave us this beautiful pic)
