We’re sorry, but sometimes you just know by the face.

If you spend an inordinate and potentially unhealthy amount of time looking through mug shots like we do over here at the Scene newsroom, you end up playing a little game: Name the Crime. The rules are obvious: you look over the pictures coming in over the wire and guess what Mr. or Ms. Felon is facing. There’s always a wild card or two in the pack, a shocker, some straight-laced Clark Kent-type up for murdering his family or running a suburban meth ring.

That wasn’t the case with William Lickvarcik. He was obviously a sex offender. We didn’t even need to look to know. Just take a gaze at that mug; this guy screams creeper, a predator right out of central casting.

According to 19ActionNews
, the 61-year-old was picked up this week by local police and F.B.I. He’s been indicted on six counts of gross sexual imposition, three counts of sexual imposition, and one count of kidnapping. He allegedly chose girls under the age of 13 as his victims.
