Not really gossip, but then again, over the weekend was the first time anyone can ever remember Santa Claus being sexually assaulted. A Santa at the Danbury Fair Mall in Danbury Connecticut said a woman wanted to sit in his lap and have her photo taken with him. While they posed for the photo, Santa alleged that the woman reached down into Santa's lap and gave a good squeeze. Apparently Santa was not very jolly about it, but did direct a Ho Ho Ho at the woman, and not in the good sense if you know what I mean.
Sandrama Lamy, 33, of Danbury, was charged with sexual assault and breach of peace. She was released on a promise to appear in court on Jan. 3. Police quickly found and identified Lamy because the woman was described as being on crutches, said Capt. Bob Myles.
A call seeking comment from Lamy was answered by a recording Tuesday morning. A woman later called back and said: "It's a false report and I don't have any idea."
Police did not give the name of the disconcerted Santa, but they said he is 65 and felt badly because children were waiting to see him. "He was apparently shocked and embarrassed by the whole incident," Myles said.
Do you really think all the kids waiting in line to see Santa even noticed that the woman groped him? It wasn't like she was giving him a lap dance or something. I'm not condoning it because if it was a guy sitting on Mrs. Claus' lap and he helped himself to a little egg nog if you know what I mean, he should be charged as well. I do know that the woman will probably get a much lighter sentence than any guy would in a similar circumstance. In fact, depending on the judge, she might just walk away with nothing done to her. If a guy did the same thing he would be looking at least probation, and possibly having to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.
