Sex Offender Arrested for Indecent Exposure in OKC

10-Mar-2014

An Oklahoma sex offender was arrested last week for allegedly walking around naked in his front yard in the presence of children. According to reports, a woman called police to report that she was driving her children to piano lessons near N Council Road and W Hefner Road when they passed a naked man getting the mail from his mailbox. Police say other witnesses called to report that the naked man had been in his yard for about 10 minutes.

When police arrived at the location, they spoke with a man who admitted that he was a registered sex offender, but refused to provide identification or to cooperate with police. 

Because the man was uncooperative and police did not witness any illegal behavior, they left the scene. One officer, however, remained nearby to observe the man, since school was dismissing soon and there would likely be many children present. The officer witnessed the man "shaking his hips and thrusting his penis" at a 14-year-old boy.

When police arrested and identified Hillard Stallings, 68, they discovered that he was not registered at the house where he was staying. He was arrested on complaints of indecent exposure and failure to register as a sex offender.

Stallings was convicted in 2009 of lewd molestation after an incident that occurred in late October 2008. He also has prior convictions for DUI and being in Actual Physical Control of a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

Indecent exposure is a felony sex crime that carries a potential sentence ranging from 30 days in jail to 10 years in prison. It is a Level 1 sex offense that requires sex offender registration for 15 years, with the registered sex offender providing address verification every year. However, a second or subsequent offense of any sex crime is categorized as a Level 3 offense, with lifetime sex offender registration and address verification every 90 days.

While the minimum jail term for indecent exposure is only 30 days, a record of prior sex offense, the involvement of children, and multiple victims will likely make a longer term much more likely.

As of this writing, formal charges have not been filed against Stallings. The criminal complaints on which he was arrested include three counts of indecent exposure. If formal charges match the arrest complaints, he will face up to ten years for each indecent exposure complaint.
