Rocky Mount man charged with indecent exposure

Posted June 8, 2009

— Authorities have charged a Rocky Mount man with indecent exposure and taking indecent liberties with a child.

A 13-year-old girl said that while walking Sunday along the 200 block of S. Pearl St. she was approached by a man who made sexual comments to her.

The suspect, later identified as Lawrence Johnson Jr., also exposed himself to her, police said.

The victim ran away and called authorities.

Johnson, 54, was arrested at his home. He was being held Monday at the Nash County Jail under a $25,000.

    I think that Deathrow was joking. Exposing himself when the girl appeared was obviously what he was doing.

    simply trying to cool down in this heat.

    You really think that? Then you really have a problem. If he showed his nakeness, then that was really out of line. Are you doing that?

    This man needs time in prison, for sure. He also needs a mental evaluation.

    People sometimes overreact. Sounds like this man was simply trying to cool down in this heat.
