Girl Scouts peeper now a sex offender

A man arrested after a woman saw him wearing a red g-string and no pants outside a Girl Scouts gathering will be released from jail but must register as a sex offender for 10 years.

Martin J. Green, 29, pleaded guilty today to felony second-degree burglary and a gross misdemeanor sex offense of communication with a minor for immoral purposes.

Green was credited for time spent in the Spokane County Jail, where he's been since his arrest Jan. 22. A woman called police after spotting Green without pants outside the building at 1404 N. Ash St., where the Girls Scouts were hosting a slumber party.

Police say Green was wearing sweat pants when they caught up with him after a brief foot chase, but they were untied and he had a “pocketful of condoms.”

Green's g-string, pocketful of condoms and lack of pants “gives me a great cause for concern for our community,” a prosecutor said at his first court appearance.

Police: Girl Scouts peeper wore g-string

A man arrested for voyeurism outside a Girl Scouts gathering in Spokane was wearing a red g-string and no pants when a woman spotted him early Sunday, officials say.

 Martin J. Green, 29, had a “pocketful of condoms” in his untied sweat pants when police arrested him after a brief foot chase near the Girl Scouts office at 1404 N. Ash St., said Deputy Prosecutor Patrick Johnson.

Green's g-string, pocketful of condoms and lack of pants “gives me a great cause for concern for our community,” Johnson said today at Green's first court appearance.

Assistant Public Defender Mike Elston disagreed.

“I fail to see the significance of the allegation of the g-string or the condoms,” Elston said. “The allegation is he looked through a window.”

Officers responded to the office about 12:45 a.m., where the group was holding a slumber party. Police lost sight of Green but caught up with him in the 1700 block of West Mission Street.

A Girl Scouts employee identified him as the shoeless man she saw looking into the building's windows while holding his pants in front of his legs, police said.

Green told police he left his home in the 1500 block of West Sharp Avenue after an argument with his girlfriend and happened to walk by the building. Green said he didn't know the building belonged to the Girl Scouts but he ran because he knew he was trespassing, according to court documents.

Green served eight years in prison in Georgia for a violent crime conviction in 1999, according to court testimony.

Superior Court Judge Annette Plese today set his bond at $10,000. He's to be arraigned Feb. 7.
