Criminals have a long history of attractive scam artists and murderers: John Dillinger, "Baby Face" Nelson, Bugsy Siegel was considered as handsome as a Hollywood leading man. Ted Bundy had no problem meeting women. Jeffrey Dalmer could pick up boys without a problem. Hell Australia started out as a penal colony, and Aussie men are arguably some of the most attractive men in the world.
Attractive people have an "in". People believe them more often and are more successful in general. But most criminals, statistically, are not good looking. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/02/16/AR2006021602039.html
"So why do cases involving attractive suspects receive so much publicity and attention? One reason is the old theory that “sex sells.” People like to see pleasing images and pretty faces on magazine covers, in the movies and on TV. By putting attractive criminals on their front pages, newspapers and magazines will attract more buyers.
Another theory is that many people have a preconceived notion (whether it is right or wrong) that attractive people wouldn’t or couldn’t commit crimes, and so it is surprising and fascinating when a pretty or handsome individual is arrested for or charged with a crime."http://www.thelawman.net/Criminal-Defense-Articles/Why-Are-Attractive-Criminals-Media-Sensations.shtml
