Apparently that's a more recent mugshot than the well-known one. Geez, how many times did this guy get arrested?

Is there a question as to whether or not the mugshot is real?

Assuming it is real and the information on the mugshot is unaltered, it is from 1998. If that is newer than the well known mugshot, it is still pretty darn old.

Indeed and the only thing that would seem to be NSFW is the loud annoying music that plays.

I think that song is from "Kill Bill"...

People abuse the "not safe for work" button. A lot of stuff that's labelled as such is not offensive at all.

"Work" may include any easily offended coworker sitting next to you. I wouldn't call that abuse per se. BTW: I don't see any NSFW tag?

I'm not sure that the famous one is a "mugshot" or not. The new one linked in the original post must be, since the date on it (9/24/98) is the same as in the docket. The more famous picture must have been taken for documentation purposes (i.e., for the sex offender registry). Is a separate photo taken for the sex offender registry? Also, the mug shot looks a lot more like his yearbook photos than the other picture; what caused the change?

There's another new photo on YTMND somewhere - it's of Brian at a family reunion as a kid. He looks pretty much how he looked in the yearbook pictures.

Bach_girl, that is sad. Not that I'm pro-nurse groping or anything, but that doesn't seem as bad as some things gross sexual imposition could have been. Still bad, don't get me wrong. I feel bad for the guy.

Well, being YTMND, I doubt that'll change anything - do a search for "Terri Schiavo" or "Dick Clark" on there.

I love all the hypocritical people who left comments on there... it's already well known that he's wheelchair bound and lives in a nursing home, so I don't understand why everyone acts so "shocked". Besides, the person that made 'The Truth' made several Peppers-bashing sites too. (And for another thing, there is no proof to that 'groping a nurse' thing.)

I am not sure how accurate the part about him groping a nurse is because there is no mention of the actual details of his offense.

Looking at the pictures of him when he was younger, I am certain that I saw him around town when I was younger, but he has not been "out and about" for quite some time because this is a pretty small town and I think I would have seen him at some point.

Off topic, but on ytmnd pages you can click the ytmnd logo on the top left to see what the image and music is. It's not always used but it's decent for finding out the source of the music.

Nah, there's a new Brian Peppers YTMND in the top 15 today, that truth thing didn't change anything.

I'm not sure if he's in a nursing home at the moment now... I think I heard someone mention that he lives in an apartment building near them, which is where the address on one of the other registries points. They claim to have seen him around, at the movies and stuff.

He used to live in an apartment building down the street from me but the new address they are giving is for a nursing home.

I'm skeptical about this too, because this isn't the first time something like this has come up. Another "letter" claimed to be from his mother. Besides, if he actually had that much inability to move his hands, how could he grope a nurse??

(I hope I don't sound like I'm trying to be a dick, I'm just trying to be reasonable.)

UPDATE: It IS fake. Allen Peppers has given 5-star votes to Brian-parody YTMND's. That settles that...

Allenpeppers profile
Based on the comments on his page, it may or may not be fake. "Allen" has stated that he doesn't mind Brian being famous, but that he is angry that people are saying he is a pedophile or a freak. He has also said that he would be getting in touch with Snopes, so I guess we'll just wait and see if that happens.

since "Allen Peppers" also created this new ( http://allenpeppersfinal.ytmnd.com/ ) YTMND, I think that pretty much says he's not a real relative of Brian Peppers. (you have to watch the entire thing to get the 'joke'.

It would seem so. I wasn't about to lend him credibility, but part of me wished he would have contacted snopes regarding Brian Peppers - there's another ytmnd that sort of inspired this allen peppers guy about how Brian is in a wheelchair and now lives in a nursing home. It does make you feel a little sorry for the guy, given what a wonderful life he must have had.

So it appears that Peppers really is in a nursing home (looking up the address does indeed lead one to the business listing for a nursing home). The question now is, where did they get their information that his conviction was for groping nurses? And does that necessitate any additional sympathy for him? Does a nursing home patient trying to cop a feel make one a hardened sex offender worthy of ridicule?
