— A complaint about a Rotterdam man exposing himself to his paper carrier led to charges filed against the man last week, after officers caught him in the act, police said.

Police were notified of the activity Jan. 10, police spokesman Lt. Jason Murphy said.

The woman reported the resident had been intentionally exposing himself to her, standing in his window as she delivered his paper in the morning.

Police responded by staking out the man’s home, essentially waiting for the carrier to deliver the paper. On Jan. 18, they caught him in the act and charged him, Murphy said.

Arrested was George H. Hughes, 63, of 1213 Paul Ave. He faces one count of public lewdness, a lower-level misdemeanor.

Hughes is officially accused of exposing himself from his home intending that he be observed, according to papers filed in court. He has yet to appear in court, according to court officials.

Hughes is an official with the South Schenectady Fire Department, Murphy confirmed. His exact title and status with the department could not be determined. Officials with the department could not be reached for comment. Nor could Hughes.

If convicted, Hughes faces up to 90 days in jail.

Sounds like a knock on the door from an officer would have been more sensible. The town will spend alot of money trying to prove a man in his own home was intending to be observed when some one kept coming back to observe him for the price of a newspaper. Who is the perv here will be a tough question to answer.

dumbfounded in schenectady. I feel the same way as Root_Beer. Why did the carrier keep going back and why did the mother allow her 13 year old daughter to keep going back.
