Barry Kutun finally faced the law, and the details were extra lurid.
Seven months after the discovery of an affidavit disclosing his alleged sexual tryst with a teenage girl, the disgraced North Miami city attorney and one-time gubernatorial candidate was cuffed Tuesday just outside his government office.
The charges: two counts of unlawful sex with a minor.
And detectives disclosed many tabloidesque tidbits:
Using his city computer, Kutun trolled the Internet on a site called AdultFriend Finder.com.The former state representative also kept in his hard drive at least one nude photo of himself posed on a bed.
Most damning, police say: Kutun doled out cash, radios and TVs to have unprotected sex with a 16-year-old.
The teen told detectives she had sex with him in his Miami Beach condominium, remembering it had "multiple taxidermy preserved animals," according to a Beach arrest warrant.
Kutun's arrest caps a bizarre and politically charged investigation that began in January when an affidavit detailing the alleged sex mysteriously surfaced in City Hall mailboxes.
It was prepared by Kutun, 64, signed by a Hollywood woman who allegedly arranged the sexual encounters with the teen -- and notarized by a city-employed paralegal.
...
His attorney, Richard Sharpstein, said Kutun never had sex with the teen and claimed the original affidavit was altered to look more damning toward his client.
...
The arrest was "politically motivated" by factions that never wanted Kutun as the city attorney, Sharpstein said.
...
Detectives went to arrest Kutun on Tuesday morning.As word leaked and television news cameras staked out his office, the detectives left empty-handed.
An hour later, Kutun showed up at North Miami police headquarters.
...
The document, dated Oct. 18, 2005, stated that Kutun paid for sex with Orenbuch, who later arranged encounters with the teen.
...
On Jan. 9, Kutun admitted to sex with the teen in a meeting called by Mayor Burns with North Miami Police Chief Gwendolyn Boyd and Assistant Chief Douglas Brown, police said.
...
Kutun claimed he thought the girl was 18 -- and that she showed him ID.He prepared the affidavit because a friend of Orenbuch had threatened to expose him.Kutun paid the man $2,000, according to the October affidavit.
...
The previous month, Hollywood had closed its investigation because Orenbuch and the teen denied having sex with Kutun.
...
Kutun took a voluntary leave of absence, but returned to his $170,000-a-year job advising the city on its legal matters pending the outcome of the investigation.
...
Police said they analyzed the contents of the computer's hard-drive and learned Kutun had accessed Adult FriendFinder.com, which features sexually explicit photos.
The next break came when Rhymer discovered the teen had signed into the visitor's log at City Hall to "drop something off to Barry."
...
Kutun also had the nude teen pose provocatively, according to the arrest warrant.
SEX AT CONDO
Later, she detailed for detectives exact locations where they had sex, including his Miami Beach condominium.
"[Kutun] paid her for sex each time," according to the arrest warrant.

May 21, 2007 Miami, FL: Former Miami City Attorney Barry Kutun won't be forced to live under The Julia Tuttle Causeway. He won't be required to register as a sex offender, wear a GPS tracking device, nor will his neighbors be notified of his presence at work or in the community. Apparently, that treatment is reserved only for us "common folk."
Mr. Kutun (above right) was alleged to have paid to have sex at least eight times with an underage prostitute and somebody took pictures. Instead of being held to a higher (or at the very least equal) standard as a member of public office, Kutun, age 65, was allowed to plead guilty to one single count of child abuse, with no sexual designation whatsoever.
...
The underage prostitute had sex with Mr. Kutun about eight times according to affidavits. The minor was only 16 years old. Kutun maintains that he did not know that he was having sex with a girl who was under the age of consent.
...
Most astounding of all is Mr. Kutun's attorney, Mr. Richard Sharpstein's assertions that there was ``no victim in this case.'' I beg to differ, the entire community has been victimized as a result of the gross injustice handed down here.
...
Somehow I doubt Mr. Valenza will get as sweet a deal as Mr. Kutun did.
...
Kutun, is married, and a former state representative who once ran for mayor of Miami Beach. He has declined all interviews as of this writing.
