Lucky 13: Our 13 Ugliest Police Mugshots of '13
Beauty (or hideousness) is subjective, of course, and each of the 13 law enforcement mugshots that begin after the jump on the next page could have easily been replaced by ... wait, lemme go back to my list ... 10 other candidates in fugliness.
An attempt was made to bounce as finalists folks who may have appeared on previous ugly mug roundups.
So for your consideration ...
1) Mario Orlando Montano
The first line of our original post on Dec. 18 said it all: "With less than two weeks of 2013 to play with, we may have stumbled upon the Ugliest Police Mugshot of the Year." The 55-year-old Anaheim resident is accused of cornering a next-door neighbor in her home, unzipping his pants and beginning to sexually assault her before she threatened to tell his landlord about the attack, which caused Montano to flee. The next day, he allegedly knocked a lady jogger to the ground at Walnut Canyon Reservoir, sat on top of her, covered her mouth, started punching her face and began to rape her before she broke free and called the cops, who arrested Montano leaving the reservoir. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment to felony attempted forcible rape, assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense and assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, along with a sentence-enhancing allegation of great bodily injury to a sexual assault victim.

2) Ronald Ennis
Actually, the onetime professional surfing hopeful out of Huntington Beach might not have made this list were it for one thing: the huge Nazi swastika tattooed to the side of his shaved head. That vaulted the 39-year-old like Hermann Göring to the No. 2 position. Ennis' board dreams were forever dimmed by crime and drug abuse, his latest bust coming a December ago for packing a Walther P-38, 9mm pistol--a no-no (or he may prefer nein-nein) for a convicted felon. That earned him a 51-month prison term in Santa Ana federal court, where Ennis apologized to the judge and promised to remove certain tattoos and work toward becoming a drug counselor when he's released in late 2017 or early 2018.

3) Cindy Ann Su'a
Considering the itchy trigger fingers of some Anaheim cops in recent years, Cindy Ann Su'a may be heralded as a hero in some quarters. Not that anyone would be putting up a poster of that kisser. The Whittier 47-year-old pleaded guilty this year to embezzling more than $360,000 from the Anaheim Police Association while serving as the cop union's office manager from August 2007 to March 2012. Detective Kerry Condon, the police association's president, delivered a victim-impact statement that described the financial strain the fraud caused the organization, how less money is now being donated to charitable groups in Anaheim, the effect on member benefits and the substantial amount of incurred costs due to the organization having to pay increased taxes to the FTB and IRS as a result of the thefts.
