Arthur Brown probably has learned a lot in the last 40 years, as he's continued to prey on children and refined his method of entrapping his victims.
The 67 seven year old has a long history dating back 40 years of molesting children, and his latest run in with the court put a $100,000 bond on him after he pretended to be a doctor and approached a 10 year old who had been injured at a ball game.
Brown began touching the boy but stopped when the boy's father intervened, they allege.
According to prosecutors, Brown was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor in 1966.
In 1974, he received supervision on a charge of taking indecent liberties with a child. He was convicted of taking indecent liberties with a child in 1984 and of aggravated sexual abuse in 1988. He also has a 2008 disorderly conduct case pending. His next court date is Sept. 12.
Currently, he's only charged with battery and with being a child sex offender in a public park zone stemming from the April case. Which might help explain why, despite 40 years of being a sexual predator, the bail is so damn low.
Reader comments on the original article pretty much sums up what a good deal of us have been screaming for years:

This guy is proof that pedophiles and sexual deviants can not be rehabilitated. Thank you Judge Scotilla for doing your best to remove this dangerous person from society and protecting innocent children in doing so.
