Cecil’s Top Prosecutor Charged With Indecent Exposure In OC

OCEAN CITY – Law enforcement charged Cecil County State’s Attorney Edward Rollins III with indecent exposure following an incident in Ocean City last week.

Rollins, 60, has been charged with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct following a June 21 incident near the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau in Ocean City.

“After consultation with the Ocean City Police Department, two counts of indecent exposure and two counts of disorderly conduct have been filed,” said Worcester County State’s Attorney Beau Oglesby Monday. “After carefully considering which course of action would be the most appropriate given the need to handle this matter with transparency balanced against the desire to shield the identities of the victims, filing a criminal information achieved both of those goals.”

According to court documents, Rollins “did indecently expose his person in a public place … the area between the Atlantic Condominiums and the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel…” The documents list one count of indecent exposure and one count of disturbing the peace on June 21 and then another count of each on June 22.

Indecent exposure is a misdemeanor and can result in the possibility of three years in jail and or a $1,000 fine. Disorderly conduct, also a misdemeanor, can result in 60 days incarceration and or a $500 fine.

Oglesby said a summons would be issued for Rollins to appear in Worcester County Circuit Court within 30 days for an initial appearance.
