"Diaper Boy" To Be Released From Prison

"The state's high court has found that the actions of a man sent to prison for wearing and displaying a child's diaper were "strange and socially inappropriate," but not criminal.

In the ruling handed down Friday, the Utah Supreme Court reversed the conviction of Barton Bagnes who was sentenced to prison in 2010 for sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony, and two counts of lewdness involving a child, a third-degree felony.

Dubbed "Diaper Boy" by police, the man apparently had a habit of approaching children and pulling his pants down to his thighs while pulling his shirt up to reveal a child's diaper.

The charges stemmed from a May 2009 incident when Bagnes flashed an Elmo diaper meant for 40-pound plus toddlers to two 9-year-old girls, according to the unanimous ruling written by Justice Thomas Lee."
