    Brief Blurb About Me:

    I grew up near Alvin in West Columbia, where I raised alligators in the swamps, spent most of my time adventuring in the woods, and came to love this area of Texas.
    Before discovering that I was a high-school teacher at heart, I worked at NASA, became a Gallery Director, taught college for 5 years, and worked at a hardware store for an absurdly long time.
    This is where I belong.

    So if all the models were of legal age, how did the police get probable cause to search his home? Or was he just dumb enough to let them in anyway?
