Florida State Representative Bob Allen was sentenced to six months probation and a $250 fine for soliciting a male cop in a men’s bathroom. Allen is “family values” Republicans who has advocated stronger penalties for those convicted of sex crimes. He had offered the undercover officer $20 to perform oral sex on the officer.

After his arrested, Allen offered a series of shifting rationales for his actions including claiming that the men’s room was full of big Black men and he was afraid of becoming a “statistic” and that he was simply trying to find cover from a coming thunderstorm.

Allen, a Merrit Island Republican, could have been sentenced to 60 days in jail. He plans to appeal.

In addition to the probation, Allen was fined $250 and must pay $245 for in restitution to the Titusville Police for the initial investigation,

Allen also must attend an HIV awareness class, undergo sexually transmitted disease testing and pay court costs.

He is also forbidden to return to Space View Park where the incident took place.
