A 19-year-old man was arrested in Darwin, Australia, in August after he shoplifted a pornographic magazine and retreated to a public restroom in the Karama Shopping Centre. A security guard trailed him, joined by a police officer, but they decided to wait until he was finished before apprehending him.
A 26-year-old man was convicted in September of masturbating in a University of Manitoba library in Winnipeg. He explained, "I was just sitting at a computer, downloading a few things, and I got a little horny. ... I do it all the time." (According to the Winnipeg Sun, one of the conditions of his six-months' probation is that he not masturbate "in a library or anywhere else.")
