22-year-old gets 60 days behind bars
Gulfport Municipal Court Judge Fant Walker has ordered Chad Jeremy Lee Parker to 60 days in jail for exposing himself to teenage girls.
The judge sentenced Parker on Wednesday for two counts of indecent exposure from separate incidents in Gulfport on Feb. 22 and Feb. 27.
The misdemeanor complaints involved girls ages 17 and 19.
Police have said both incidents occurred at traffic lights on U.S. 49.
One was at Duckworth Road and the other was at Orange Grove Road.
Parker, 22, of Gulfport, faced a maximum penalty of six months in jail for a single count.
The judge imposed the maximum penalty but suspended jail time on one count and suspended four months on the other, leaving two months to serve.
The judge ordered a psychological assessment, a year of house arrest and a year’s probation.
The judge also ordered Parker to pay $1,068, which includes fines and court costs.
A similar charge is pending in Harrison County Justice Court.
That charged was filed by the Sheriff’s Department on Feb. 22, when a 16-year-old Harrison Central High School student reported that a young man exposed himself to her.
The girl told the Sheriff’s Department the man exposed himself and made a lewd remark as their vehicles stopped at the intersection of School Road and U.S. 49.
Incident reports show several women and girls reported a man in a silver Ford Explorer watched them as they left school that afternoon.
Parker’s arraignment on that charge is set for April 7.
