As reported by Amanda Milkovits in the October 12, 2012 edition of the Providence Journal, a Providence man was been arrested and charged with indecent exposure/disorderly conduct. The man is accused of exposing himself to a counselor. The man was previously convicted of both first and second degree sexual assault. He has also been charged as a probation violator for failing to register as a sex offender.
Pursuant to Rhode Island General Laws 11-45-2, indecent exposure/disorderly conduct is defined as a person commits indecent exposure/disorderly conduct when for the purpose of sexual arousal, gratification or stimulation, such person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly:
(1) Exposes his or her genitals to the view of another under circumstances in which his or her conduct is likely to cause affront, distress, or alarm to that person;
(b) Any person may be a complainant for the purposes of instituting action for any violation of this section. This act shall not apply to any conduct between consenting adults where the complainant is an unintended witness.
If convicted the penalties include imprisonment for a term of not more than one year, or fined not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000), or both. Any subsequent offense shall be punished by imprisonment for a term of up to three (3) years. In addition, every person convicted of, or placed on probation for a violation of this section, may be ordered to attend appropriate professional counseling to address his or her behavior.
