Hereford man admits exposing himself at Upper Perk High School
NORRISTOWN » A 20-yearold Berks County man faces some court supervision and community service after he admitted to exposing himself to a teacher while he was a student at Upper Perkiomen High School.
Brian S. Rowland, of the first block of Mystic Lane, Hereford, was sentenced in Montgomery County Court to six months of probation after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of indecent exposure in connection with an incident that occurred at the high school in Upper Hanover in April 2016. At the time of the incident, Rowland was 18, according to court documents.
Judge William R. Carpenter, who accepted a plea agreement in the case, also ordered Rowland to complete 24 hours of community service as a condition of the sentence. Rowland also must undergo a psychosexual evaluation, the judge said.
The judge ordered Rowland to have no contact with the female teacher identified as the victim of the incident.
Court documents indicate state police at Skippack responded to the high school on April 22, 2016, to investigate a complaint that a student had exposed himself to a teacher. The female teacher reported to school officials that Rowland, a student, exposed himself to her on two occasions on April 21.
The teacher reported that the first incident occurred during first period when Rowland was in a computer room. As Rowland left the room he called to the teacher and exposed his genitals to her, state police Trooper Marc Fischer alleged in a criminal complaint.
The second incident, the teacher told police, occurred after school when Rowland came to her classroom again. Rowland asked the teacher a question and when she looked at him to answer she noticed his genitals were exposed from his shorts, according to the criminal complaint.
The teacher told police she immediately looked away and walked out of the room.
When police questioned Rowland about the incidents he refused to speak, according to the criminal complaint.
Under state law, by pleading guilty to indecent exposure, Rowland admitted that he exposed his genitals in a public place under circumstances in which he knew or should have known that his conduct would offend, affront or alarm others.
