‘Singing Sex Offender’: I’m An Entertainer

January 7th, 2010 by

TAVARES, Fla. (clickorlando)– Local 6 on Sunday spoke exclusively with a Central Florida sex offender who was jailed after violating his probation by posting videos on YouTube.

Edward Muscare, 72, has been called the “singing sex offender,” and videos he posted on YouTube show the convicted sex offender singing along to hit songs like “Pretty Woman.”

Muscare’s videos drew hundreds of thousands of views, but his fame contributed to his eventual arrest and new home at the Lake County Jail.

Muscare will be sentenced Jan. 6 on charges that he violated his probation.

“For one-time offenders who have done their best, who have paid their debt to society, have lived a good life, they should give them a break and say, ‘Hey, he’s done his part,’ ” Muscare said.

In 1987, Muscare pleaded no contest to sexually battering a 14-year-old Orlando boy.

“I would never sexually offend again, but we can’t help but sin. We’re all human beings,” Muscare said.
Muscare has been in trouble with the law in the past as well. He said he was being harassed by neighbors, so he decided not to register his address.

“I wanted to hide from the (sexual offender) registry, and I hid successfully in South Carolina, until one day the deputy sheriff showed up with a warrant for my arrest,” Muscare said.

Muscare said he considers himself no threat to society and he hopes a judge will see his case the same way, even possibly allowing him to post on YouTube again, legally.

“I’m an entertainer, and I’ve entertained all my life,” Muscare said. “They’re done in fun and I’m sure that most of the people see it that way.”
