A man who repeatedly exposed himself to women and at least one child at a Lake Elsinore park pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor charges and was immediately sentenced to three years probation.
Aaron Vincent Acevedo, 30, was arrested in September 2015 following a Riverside County sheriff’s investigation into flashing incidents that occurred over a six-month span.
Trial proceedings were scheduled to begin Monday at the Riverside Hall of Justice, but when the case was called, the prosecution and defense informed Superior Court Judge David Gunn that a plea agreement had been reached.
Under the deal, Acevedo admitted all six counts of indecent exposure filed against him.
In addition to probation, Gunn ordered Acevedo to serve six months in a sheriff’s work release program, in lieu of jail.
According to sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Brosche, Acevedo targeted victims at Rosetta Canyon Park. He would cruise the area in an Acura Legend, driving around nude and jumping out of the car to expose himself to women, and in one instance, a young girl, Brosche said.
Acevedo was active mostly in the nighttime and early morning hours, Brosche said.
Brosche said that on a couple of occasions, Acevedo streaked down Rosetta Canyon Drive, completely unclothed.
There were eight known victims, according to court documents.
Acevedo had no documented prior felony or misdemeanor convictions.
