Steven Jon Roger, our latest Shmuck of the Week, put yoga students in a bad position

Even the best-looking people look goofy with their asses in the air -- goofy and vulnerable. Earlier this week, Aspen yoga teacher Steven Jon Roger, 49, was convicted of sliding his hands down the pants of two women in his class while they were held yoga poses, downward dog and child's pose.

Some of Roger's students defended him, while Roger himself has steadfastly denied it, saying touching is part of yoga instruction.

But it's hard to mistake a hand down your pants -- and the jury felt so, too.
