DETROIT (WWJ/AP) — A 39-year-old suspect in a series of indecent exposure cases involving Detroit schoolgirls has been charged with six new incidents.
Mario R. James, a father of eight, was arraigned last Thursday on charges of accosting children for immoral purposes and indecent exposure. The charges involve three incidents against two 12-year-old girls in April.
In each case, James would drive his pickup truck over to a girl as she was walking to school and expose himself, police said. He is also accused of trying to get one of the girls inside his vehicle.
James has a probable cause hearing scheduled June 17 in the earlier cases.
On Monday, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy charged James in six new cases from March 4 to May 13 involving girls ages 10 to 15. He was expected to be arraigned Monday afternoon in Detroit District Court.
Court records don’t list a lawyer for James.
