Man arrested 32nd time on sex offenses

On Nov. 30, a 59-year-old Florida man was arrested for allegedly touching himself near Delray Beach. It is the 32nd time he has been taken into custody on charges of indecent exposure or lewd acts.

According to police documents, people at the beach reported the defendant to a lifeguard after seeing him make lewd hand motions. They did not actually see his genitalia. By the time officers arrived, the defendant had left the scene. He was later spotted at a nearby park, but he tried to flee on a bike and on foot.

After being apprehended, the defendant denied any wrongdoing, telling officers he was urinating on some sea grapes. He was charged with indecent exposure and resisting arrest without violence. He was released without bail and then arrested again the following day on a trespassing charge. As of Dec. 2, he was being held with no bond. He has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation and to stay away from the area in which he was arrested.

Individuals charged with sex offenses such as indecent exposure and lewd acts can face serious consequences if they are convicted. Not only could they be sentenced to significant jail time and heavy fines, but they could also suffer social stigma due to the sensitive nature of the alleged crimes. However, a defendant may be able to protect their future and reputation by promptly contacting a criminal defense attorney familiar with sex offenses. Legal counsel could review the case and work to build a strong defense that counters the prosecution's case. This may lead to a reduction or dismissal of charges.
