Denver police crush sex offender's car

Posted: Updated:

DENVER — Denver police have crushed a car belonging to a man who pleaded guilty to attempting to sexually assault a child.

Police destroyed the vehicle of 37-year-old Balazs Toth on Tuesday, saying it's a public nuisance.

The former Roman Catholic school teacher also received a 90-day jail sentence in the case, in which he was accused of going online to try to lure a child to a McDonald's parking lot for sex in December.

Police say a vehicle can be considered a public nuisance in Denver if it is used to attempt a sexual assault.

Toth was sentenced in June, also receiving five years of sex offender probation. His phone number isn't listed, and he couldn't be reached for comment.
