A 43 year old man accused of flashing and chasing children at Saginaw County bus stops earlier this year has taken a plea deal.

Willie B “Chico” Peterson was in court this Tuesday, and pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated indecent exposure.

The charge is a 2 year misdemeanor, but Peterson was pleading as a habitual offender.

The maximum potential sentence for a 4th offence-habitual offender holds a 15 year sentence-enhancement.

In exchange for the plea, single counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct-assault, accosting a child for immoral purposes, and indecent exposure by a sexually delinquent person, dismissed. 

Being charged with indecent exposure by a sexually delinquent person is a life sentence.
