Crime and Courts for Feb. 10

Tiki Gales

Bail set at $10,000 in indecent exposure case

District Judge Thomas G. Underwood set a $10,000 cash bond Feb. 1 for Tikis Gales, 35, of Norfolk, charged with damaging or destroying property, indecent exposure and two counts of indecent exposure with lascivious intent to a minor (a felony) after he allegedly urinated on a Sheriff’s Office cruiser when he was denied a visit with a female inmate at the county jail on Jan. 15. The minor and others were present in the county parking lot when Gales exited the jail after his request was denied, authorities said.

Underwood set the bond after hearing testimony about Gales’ four prior felony convictions in Virginia. He remains at the jail — where male and female inmates are kept in separate lockups.

Also on Feb. 1, John Christian Christensen, 23,. of Alexandria was sentenced to 10 days in jail after testing positive for drugs while on probation. Ashley Bernadette Corrado, 22, and Michael Eugene Teel, 18, both of Winchester, pleaded guilty to unauthorized distribution of controlled drug paraphernalia and were each fined $200 by Underwood.

Erich Michael Evans, 39, of Castleton, pleaded guilty to driving with a revoked license, his second offense. Underwood fined him $150 and sentenced him to 20 days in jail. On separate charges of failing to appear and improper registration, he was fined $50 and $35 respectively.
