Woodstock – WOODSTOCK- The 20-year-old man arrested for exposing his genitals at two Woodstock locations pleaded guilty and was sentenced in Woodstock court Wednesday.
David Stevens was sentenced to serve 17 days in jail but will serve 15 of those days because of credit given for his pretrial custody. He was also ordered to submit a DNA sample for the national DNA databank and received two years of probation.
The Woodstock Police Service had been searching for Stevens after incidents at the Wal-Mart and the Woodstock Public Library. In both incidents, he exposed himself to women in the aisles of each location.
The Wal-Mart incident was reported on July 11 and the Woodstock Public Library incident took place on July 14. Police released surveillance footage from both events on July 20, asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect.
The original two counts of mischief were dropped from Stevens’ list of charges. For each act of exposing himself, he received 17 days, minus time spent in custody and the same sentence for breaching a prior probation order to keep the peace and be on good behaviour. The sentences are to be served concurrently.
