MUNICIPAL Court News:
Gustavo Salaiz, 19, of Los Alamos pleaded guilty July 31 in Los Alamos Municipal Court to a charge of indecent exposure and received a 90-day jail sentence with 80 of those days suspended. He was placed on supervised probation for six months.
The charge stemmed from a June 28 incident at Mesa Public Library during which Salaiz exposed himself to a female patron. The patron reported to Los Alamos Police officers that Salaiz walked up to her while she was sitting at a desk and exposed his penis to her. As Salaiz left the scene, he glanced over his shoulder and the patron took a photo of him.
Indecent exposure is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison and up to $1,000 in fines.
