Most of 'Man Cave' Park Sex Defendants Plead Guilty

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- Court records show most of those charged in a sex sting at two city parks in Johnson City have pleaded guilty.

Forty men were busted over two weeks in late September and early October. Most were charged with disorderly conduct, indecent exposure or both.

Police said at the time of the arrests that some of the activity took place in a remote, brushy section of Winged Deer Park where undergrowth resembles a cave. Some dubbed it the "Man Cave."

All of those arrested have been banned from city parks. Most received suspended sentences, some with six months of supervision.

Two men failed to appear in court and seven cases were set over to later dates.
