Springfield man pleads guilty to public indecency charges

A Springfield man accused of relieving himself in front of officers in a public place pleaded guilty to charges lodged against him, according to court records.

Justin Frederick, 29, was charged with public indecency and disorderly conduct in Clark County Municipal Court. Both charges are misdemeanors and during an arrangement hearing Monday, court records say Frederick pleaded guilty to them.

He was ordered to pay $250 fine, according to the records.

Officers began their investigation on Saturday at around 3:30 a.m. when they were dispatched to a home on the 300 block of Selma Road, according to a Springfield police affidavit. They said a man exited a vehicle from the passenger side and stood at an intersection yelling at the driver.

Officers approached the man, later identified as Frederick, who began dropping his shorts to urinate, according to the affidavit.

“Officers advised Mr. Federick to stop what he was doing and to pull his shorts up,” the report says.

At this time officers say Federick began to curse at them and told them he would do what he wants.

He was arrested at that time, the affidavit says. Federick was ordered into court on Monday morning, the affidavit says.
