Larry Bass is a registered sex offender who recently pleaded guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor by admitting to buying alcohol for a 14-year-old.
As a sentence, the judge is making Bass walk around the streets of Petersburg while carrying a sign that says "registered sex offender who bought alcohol for kids."
Bass's brother says he wants people to know this is not the full sentence. He tells Eyewitness News that Larry Bass has already served 3 years on the charge of providing alcohol to a minor. Bass has another year and three months to serve on the sentence, but he agreed to carry the sign in order to get six months knocked off his sentence.
We have a crew in Petersburg, and we will have more on this story tonight.
