DEPUTIES: Sex Offender Exposes Self To Women, Young Child

A registered sex offender is back in jail after deputies say he exposed himself to two women and a child.

Robert Springle of Newport is charged with two counts of indecent exposure. Carteret County deputies say on Wednesday the 58-year-old Springle is accused of standing in front of his window, wearing only a red shirt and touching himself while looking at the two women and a three year old child.

Deputies say the man was originally convicted for engaging in a lewd and lascivious act of indecent exposure in front of a child in 1988 and again in 2004 in Florida. They say Springle must stay on the sex registry for life.

His bond was set at $10,000.

    About a week ago we were sitting around drinking and she said she found his picture on the sex perv page and swore she would do anything to get him out.You might want to take a look at her[D.S.S.].

      i totally dont understand what youre talking about--who is the 'she' you refer to? and by get him out do you mean get the accused out of the 'sex perv page' or out of town? what? if you have some actual information that would be useful, you should share it with the police, not post random bits of cryptic sentences on a news story forum!

      I agree Bill, you never know! She may be a liar and it's wrong to accuse an innocent man. Just because it happens once doesnt mean it will again.

    Now this is the type of sicko that the registry was intended for. He deserves a good beating as well. If you read this pervert remember what I'm about to tell you. If this were my wife and kid, you would never know when and I would never get caught, I would be coming to see you late one night.

    Idiot; Pervert; Slimeball; Weirdo; Scary Guy; does that sum it up for readers? I remember someone's Dad doing a similar act while I was visiting at the age of 7/8 yrs. old...not cool. I never went back.

    Maybe he was trying to distract attention from that ugly mug of his!

    Are you sure he's not wearing a disguise? Looks like he's wearing one of those fake eyeglasses, nose, and moustache get ups you see in a toy store. Not sure the cops would know the difference.

    What if the old pervert wearing only the red shirt had ran onto a college football field at halftime. What if the young streaker had ran nude in any neighborhood. One is as bad as the other.

      No, not as bad. It depends on intent. This sicko was commiting a lewd act in the process of exposing himself for the purpose of sexual gratification.

          No, I can read the paper and comprehend what it says.
