Even Alleged Serial Public Flashers Are Entitled To A Vigorous Defense

Lakeland, FL (Law Firm Newswire) July 12 , 2013 - A 65-year-old Florida man was arrested for exposing himself in a Boca Raton bookstore.

“This is a somewhat odd case, as the man's behavior was certainly questionable. He was caught masturbating in the nearby presence of a 12-year-old girl and her mother while they were reading a book in the children's section,” explained Thomas Grajek, a Lakeland criminal defense attorney. Witnesses say the child did not see the man fondling himself, and another customer stopped him and contacted store employees. Two male customers chased him down and handed him over to the police.

“Since the child did not witness alleged incident, the man could only be charged with a first-degree misdemeanor, according to Florida statutes. That means he could not be taken into custody until an arrest warrant could be filed,” added Grajek. If the child had seen the alleged incident, the man would have been charged with a felony and arrested on the spot.

While the alleged perpetrator was found to have a prior criminal record, including nine convictions for indecent exposure and masturbating while standing beside women in craft stores and bookstores, all citizens charged with a crime, no matter what it happens to be, deserve to be regarded as innocent until proven otherwise, says Grajek.

“It is possible he is more in need of psychological or psychiatric assistance and counseling, rather than doing time in jail where his problems would not be addressed. Defending someone is also about helping them get assistance when they clearly need it,” said Grajek.“If you are about to be charged with a sex crime or have been charged with a sex crime, do not waste any time in obtaining a competent criminal defense lawyer. You will need one to navigate the criminal system and have someone speak in your defense."
