Former Children’s Visitation Center Manager Exposes Himself in Public Restroom
BROOKSVILLE – A man who families trusted to watch their children during court ordered visitation faces charges of indecent exposure, after officials say he exposed himself inside to a man inside a public restroom.
According to Brooksville Police, a male adult victim contacted police on July 12th, after he stopped to use the restroom at McKethan Park in Brooksville. The victim was taking a break from operating a street sweeper when he entered the restroom alone. Minutes later, 75-year-old Jerry Childress entered the restroom and inserted his penis into a hole that was drilled through the bathroom divider. The victim slammed the divider and fled the bathroom to call police.
Police arrived on the scene but did not locate Childress in the immediate area. About 45 minutes later the victim reported seeing Childress exit a wooded area and leave in a vehicle. The victim followed Childress to Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church, located on North Broad Street, and called Police. The Police made contact with Childress at that location, where he admitted to committing the act. Officials tell RNRF that this isn’t the first time Childress has performed this kind of act in public.
On July 19th Childress was arrested and charged with one count of indecent exposure and is now free on a $1,000 bond.
Childress was the Brooksville Visitation Center’s manager, located at 275 Oak Street, until it closed late last year due to lack of funding. It is unknown if an investigation will be conducted into possible misconduct during his time as the center’s manager.
A video interview and confession is forthcoming.
