MAN CONVICTED OF EXPOSING HIMSELF TO YOUNG GIRLS NEAR HIGH SCHOOLS ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS
SANTA ANA – A man was convicted and sentenced today for exposing himself to young girls in public on multiple occasions near two high schools. Alfredo Landaverde, 48, Costa Mesa, pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and five misdemeanor counts of child annoyance. Landaverde was sentenced to one year in jail, five years formal probation, and mandatory lifetime sex offender registration.
On four occasions between Oct. 3, 2012, and Dec. 6, 2012, Landaverde was driving in a white minivan in Santa Ana near Valley High School and Godinez Fundamental High School. Between 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., Landaverde approached 10 girls in his vehicle between the ages of 14 and 17, opened the driver side door and exposed his penis while he remained inside his minivan. In some cases, Landaverde smiled and masturbated to the victims.
The victims reported the incidents to school officials, who contacted the police. The Santa Ana Police Department and the Santa Ana Unified School District Police Department investigated this case.
Landaverde’s lifetime sex offender registration bars him from entering County recreational areas and City parks which have passed the Sex Offender Ordinance.
