Default Wow...What do you think?

Christopher Butler owns a private detective agency specializing in finding cheating spouses:

David Dutcher was in the middle of a divorce (separated) in 2008 and decided to get back into the dating scene. Dutcher, an engineer, went on to Match.com and met Sharon….who was very, very cute…and very, very much looking for love. As Dutcher told the LA Times, “It felt a lot like Christmas.” After a casual meeting the first time, Sharon told Dutcher to meet her and a female friend at restaurant….now Dutcher had two good looking women on his arm. One would loosen his tie while the other massaged his neck … it was starting to look a lot like Christmas. They all had a few drinks, shots, and then the recommendation came for Dutcher to join the two ladies at a home nearby home, which had a hot tub. What luck? Soon Dutcher was in his car following the two ladies when the siren of a police car was in the rearview mirror. Booked on DUI, David Dutcher’s evening was over, but Christopher Butler’s job (as the private detective) was done.

Butler, whose firm was under contract by Dutcher’s wife, had achieved the desired result of nailing Mr. Dutcher for DUI. The women ogling over Dutcher were working for Butler and the policeman was tipped that Mr. Dutcher was about to get into his car after a few cocktails. The incident affected the divorce proceedings and Mr. Dutcher’s ability to visit with his children. It also hurt his application to gain needed security clearances for his work. Dutcher did not know he was setup at the time but the consequences of the DUI were very real.

What do I think?

Don't know enough of the story. If David carried himself around and treated people like some of the folks do hear, then what a great scam. If all things point to the ex being a douche, then definitely not cool.

Regardless of that though, Christopher Butler needs to change professions before someone kills him.

Yeah, Butler(lol) is a douche for what he does, but Dutcher is the guilty one.

The girls didn't force him to drink. They didn't force him to drive. He chose that all on his own even if they were dangling the carrot there for him. Life is full of those carrots every day...

I agree with Scoots, he might want to think of a new way to make a living.

I agree that nobody forced Dutcher to have those drinks and then get behind the wheel. But if Butler and his cohorts intentionally plied Dutcher with the drinks, all the while knowing they would be calling the cops on him, he could have a case for entrapment. Of course, my actual knowledge of the law is limited to land use and real estate. Anything I profess to know about criminal law comes only from years of watching Law & Order.

Yeah I agree. I don't have an evil mind..I never would have thought that kind of thing up, much less have the balls to try on someone. That takes a 'special' kind of person to do that and sleep at night.

Sounds like a quick way to get yourself shot, I wonder if this "detective" has a body guard with him all the time.

I wonder why Dutcher wanted to get a divorce to begin with. It says that he tried to start dating again after the divorce was already started.

I agree.

If he was the type that was screwing around on his wife and drinking and driving regularly he got what he deserved. If he was just married to some psychobitchfromhell and wanted out and to start a new life with a nice girl, he got screwed, and not in a good way.

I noticed it said the girls were also drinking and driving. So did the one driving also get a DUI? I bet not.

I was happy to read in the article that Mr. Butler is in a lot of hot water for this and many other things.

Honestly sounds like the stereotypical "dirty cop" from the movies.

I wonder what he blew? Was it close? Was he showing any signs or just a pure case of entrapment.

Half of me thinks he got what he deserved and half of me thinks that the whole set up was horrible.
