Brody Ostrander

Brody Ostrander pleaded guilty Oct. 12 to indecent exposure charges in Wetzel County, leaving only his original Marshall County charges left to be answered.

A week after reporting to the North Central Regional Jail to serve his sentence on indecent exposure charges in Tyler County, Ostrander pleaded guilty to one count of indecent exposure in Wetzel County Magistrate Court. According to Wetzel County Assistant Prosecutor Carl “Worthy” Paul, Ostrander was sentenced to 90 days in jail, which will run concurrent with his Tyler County sentence.

Ostrander pleaded guilty last month to two counts of indecent exposure for his involvement in an incident in July along state Route 18 near Kidwell.

While still incarcerated for the first count in Tyler County, he was charged by the sheriff’s office with two counts of indecent exposure, bringing the total to three counts.

One of the three counts was dismissed after Tyler County Prosecutor Luke Furbee said a witness was unable to make a positive identification of Ostrander in a photo array.

Ostrander was sentenced to two consecutive 90-day sentences in the North Central Regional Jail with credit for time served.

Tyler County Magistrate Michael K. Griffin ordered Ostrander to report to serve his sentence Oct. 6.

Ostrander’s Tyler County incidents occurred while he was on bond in Marshall County following a series of incidents in spring 2010 in which he allegedly exposed himself to traffic along state Route 2 and in other areas of Marshall County.

After being arrested and indicted on indecent exposure charges, Ostrander’s case had been delayed so a psychological exam could be conducted.

No hearings had taken place on those charges in several months and Ostrander was free on bond while the examination was conducted.

In July, Ostrander’s bond was revoked by Marshall County Circuit Judge David W. Hummel after Ostrander was arrested following the Tyler County incidents. Additionally, Ostrander was charged with two counts of indecent exposure in Wetzel County. Two children were among the witnesses involved in the those incidents.
