A San Jose Sergeant was arrested for charges of misdemeanor indecent exposure in Redwood City (California Penal Code 314) after he allegedly masturbated in his vehicle while exposing his privates to a 39-year-old woman. It is alleged that the woman initially ignored the Sergeant but that he followed along side her while continuing to expose his genitals.
Should the Sergeant be convicted of indecent exposure charges, he is facing a jail sentence up to 6 months, a maximum fine of $1,000, as well as mandatory lifetime registration as a sex offender (California Penal Code 290). Felony charges of the same kind can end in heftier fines and time in state prison. He is currently on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the case.
