A jury deliberated for 15 minutes Monday before finding a Lawrence man guilty of exposing himself to a 14-year-old girl this spring near a school bus stop in northern Lawrence.
Jurors in Douglas County District Court found Shawn Michael Bedient guilty of felony lewd and lascivious conduct, Dist. Atty. Charles Branson said. He likely will receive probation under state sentencing guidelines and will be sentenced in early November.
Bedient, 36 at the time of his arrest in late April, was caught by police at Clinton Lake a few days after the incident, based on a tip from a crossing guard at Pinckney School who had spotted a man matching a description given by police to school district employees.
