Things are looking grim for former Democratic Rep. Dwayne Dobbins. The erstwhile legislator, who resigned in 2005 as part of a plea bargain after he fondled a 17-year-old girl, had aimed to convince a Pulaski County judge that he should be on the ballot in 2008. (State Democrats voted in the summer not to certify Dobbins for the ballot.)
But now Attorney General Dustin McDaniel says, “No dice,” and tells Dobbins that he’s waited too long, the AP’s Andrew Demillo reports. McDaniel’s asking the judge to dismiss Dobbins’ case.
I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but to be honest, I’m starting to feel for the guy. I understand how tough it can be in this world for a misunderstood ladies’ man like Dwayne Dobbins. After all, I’m a bit of a ladies’ man myself. Of course, my attempts at seduction usually don’t end in plea bargains. Tears and apologies, sure. Restraining orders, maybe. But a plea bargain? Hardly ever.
