Tallahassee, FL (November 20, 2018) – Police say that a man is currently behind bars in Leon County for exposing himself to a woman after peeping through her bedroom window. The man was identified as 22-year-old Dietrick Sutherland, who was taken into custody for his crimes yesterday, November 19.
The woman called police when she had been changing clothes and noticed that somebody was looking through her bedroom window. The victim ran outside so that she could confront the suspect, which is when she said he was speechless and exposed his penis to her. The victim was soon called in for a lineup, which is where she was able to identify the suspect.
Sutherland has since been charged with indecent exposure in public and voyeurism.
Tallahassee Indecent Exposure Laws
To receive charges for indecent exposure, the prosecutor in your case must be able to show that you had unlawful intent, an actual act of exposure and that you were located at the scene of the act when it occurred. If these aspects are not proven, then your charges might not hold. This sex crime is typically charged as a first-degree misdemeanor if those who are underage were not involved, which could lead to a year or less of imprisonment and a fine of up to $1,000.
