Cops Give Sexual Assault Victims Pamphlets With Sex Line Number on Them

Apparently Lake County Sheriff's deputies wanted to help victims of sexual assault and domestic violence by handing out fliers and pamphlets with an 800 number to call in case they needed to talk to someone.

And that someone apparently is America's hottest sex-talk hotline!

"Welcome to America's hottest talk line," the automated message says when the number on the pamphlet is dialed. "Ladies, to talk to interesting and exciting guys free, press 1 now. Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you."

Well done, Lake County Sheriff's deputies!

Lake County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Jim Vachon told Orlando's WMKG that they just print the numbers they're given and that the number they put on these fliers is the same number they've used for years.

The number is supposed to go to a victim's advocacy group called the Haven.

Problem is, the Haven neither has an 800 number nor helps victims by having them talk to interesting and exciting guys.

Vachon says the error was brought to his attention by a victim who had been handed a pamphlet.

At this point, no one seems to know how the sex line got onto the pamphlets, though the Sheriff's Office is going with the ol' "clerical error" excuse.

Clerical error, maybe. But a pamphlet created to help victims of sexual assault leading said victims to a sex line is kind of a crazy coincidence.

For now, the Lake County Sheriff's Office say that pamphlets have stopped being handed out (oh, good!) and that new ones are being printed.

Hopefully this time someone will bother to double-check the number to make sure it's not 1-800-HOOK-UP.
