Indecent Exposure Criminal Defense Lawyer: Instructor Exposes Himself to Female Victim

Posted by Kyle B. Sawyer | Dec 30, 2015 | 0 Comments

According to a news story, an instructor from a state college department of finance exposed himself to a victim and touched himself while they were having lunch in his office. The woman was allegedly showing him videos of Wonder Woman on her phone when he began exposing and touching himself. After the incident occurred, the woman began to back away and the instructor told her to put the video back on. He then apologized and gave her $70. Apparently, the two knew each other for years, but the conduct came as a shock to the female. If he actually touched and exposed himself to the alleged victim, the instructor would likely be charged with Indecent Exposure in Denver and Douglas County.
