Hot New Makeover For Peter "Spanky Pete" Rickmyer, Level Three Sex Offender, Currently In Jail...
While writing my previous story about Peter "Spanky Pete" Rickmyer, (who also goes by Peter Richard Stephenson because, um, well it's complicated but suffice to say the man has somehow found opportunities to get away with using another name) I was linking to Peter's special little portion of the the State Department of Corrections website when I noticed...
Oh, my word. "Spanky Pete" has a hot new look.
Or does he? The top photo bears the notation "11/04." Is that November of 2004? Or (it seems more likely) some date has been truncated and digits are missing. No matter. The fact is this image is pretty close to the way "The Spank-i-nator" looks right now. Like many of these professional sex creeps, he's known to change his appearance with facial hair, or a bald "Mr. Clean" look, a bizarre white fedora, or whatever rocks his boat. It's tough to keep up with Rickmyer's changes of appearance but, to their credit, the DOC has updated Rickmyer's image a few times on their website. Off the top of my tired head, I can't recall so much as one other instance of a "Level Three" mug shot getting an update, and some of them clearly need to be updated since they're blurry in the first place.
With more Level Three sex offenders in our neighborhood than any other part of the state, I think residents of North Minneapolis bear a large burden and certainly have a right to updated and accurate sex offender images. As for Spanky Pete, as of this moment he has no court hearing set but just seems to be rotting away in the hoosegow. At least he can (parody font) take comfort in the fact that every time he changes his appearance and DOC posts a new photo, the old photo is still somewhere on this blog.
I close this topic with my usual annoying public begging to any source who can provide me a list of the current addresses of all Level Three sex offenders in North Minneapolis, which I will not hesitate to publish. Oh, and the usual grating musical homage to Spanky Pete, click here for Bloodhound Gang.
