Boston man charged with indecent exposure

Kevin Robert Flynn, 32, of Boston was arrested Monday (June 8) and charged with indecent exposure after allegedly exposing himself in the Rappahannock County Circuit Court Clerk’s office.

Shortly before the incident, Flynn had pleaded guilty and been sentenced in circuit court for a misdemeanor driving offense, speeding in excess of 80 mph. Apparently unsatisfied with the outcome of the case, he had visited the clerk’s office to send it to the appellate court. Clerk’s office personnel would not comment on the incident.

In the original case, Virginia State Police Trooper Phillip Thomas had clocked Flynn on Dec. 8 driving 94 mph in a 45-mph zone. Flynn was found guilty in district court on March 3, but appealed his case to the circuit court. There he pleaded guilty and was sentenced by Judge John J. McGrath to 60 days in the RSW Regional Jail, with 46 days suspended; 12 months of unsupervised probation; and ordered to complete a driver improvement course before Dec. 1. Flynn’s license was suspended for six months, but he can apply for a restricted license after one month. The judge also allowed Flynn’s request to serve his jail time on weekends so he could continue to work.

Originally scheduled for a trial, the outcome Monday was part of a plea agreement. The next day, Flynn was arraigned on the indecent exposure charge in district court and released.

Also in circuit court Monday, Johnny William Pullen Sr., 23, of Fredericksburg, pleaded guilty to charges of breaking and entering and grand larceny in connection with the Jan. 28 theft of copper and other metals from Jeffrey Scroggins Jr. and to similar charges in the theft of currency from Frances Pullen on Jan. 20. His sentencing is scheduled for July 13.

As part of a plea agreement, James Merica of Shenandoah pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony. According to Commonwealth’s Attorney Art Goff, Merica was apprehended Jan. 2 by RCSO Deputy C. Koglin, who was responding to reports of possible “road-hunting” on Thornton Gap Church Road in Sperryville. Merica is due to be sentenced July 13.

Jobe Millard Wood, 53, of Washington, pleaded not guilty to violating his probation stemming from a felony DWI charge in February of 2013. According to the probation violation charge, Wood had failed to enter and complete the state’s VASAP alcohol education program. Wood testified that he did not realize he had been ordered to complete VASAP, but had complied with all other provisions of his sentence. In dismissing the violation charge, Judge John J. McGrath said, “You’ve been doing well” and instructed Wood to talk with a representative of the VASAP program who was in court. McGrath ordered Wood to enroll in the program before July 1.

In district court June 2, 33-year-old Daniel Webster Ramey of Sperryville was sentenced for a second-offense DWI in March and arraigned on a third-offense DWI charge (with a blood alcohol level over .2) at the same session. Ramey remains in custody at RSW Regional Jail, awaiting a hearing on the most recent DWI charge Aug. 4.

Ramey was sentenced to 12 months on the second DWI conviction, with 11 months suspended, plus a three-year license suspension and a $500 fine.

In the third DWI charge, RCSO Deputy Chris Ubben, responding to a phone call to the sheriff’s office about an erratic driver, arrested Ramey May 31 on U.S. 211 near Wildwood Circle. Ubben’s complaint says breath analysis determined Ramey’s blood alcohol level was .23 percent after he was arrested. (The legal limit is .08.)
