Accused Fallbrook flasher pleads not guilty

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CNS) - A man accused of repeatedly exposing himself to women as they walked through an open-space park near his home in Fallbrook pleaded not guilty Wednesday to three misdemeanor charges, including indecent exposure and sexual battery.

Austin Lee Harper, 20, was ordered held on $50,000 bail.

Investigators believe Harper "flashed" female pedestrians in Los Jilgueros Preserve on South Mission Road on at least five occasions this month, San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Todd Richardson said.

Last Friday morning, detectives were talking to Harper regarding an unrelated trespassing case when he allegedly revealed details that only the flasher would know. He also provided written evidence regarding the crimes, Richardson said without elaboration.

Deputy District Attorney Ted Fiorito said the defendant was charged in connection with incidents on Dec. 7, Dec. 14 and Dec. 21.

Harper -- who was on probation for assault at the time of his arrest -- faces 18 months in jail if convicted, the prosecutor said.

The defendant will be back in court Jan. 2 for a readiness conference and Jan. 23 for trial.
