A 33-year-old Lancaster County man pleaded guilty Friday to indecent exposure after police say he exposed himself to others in Eaton Township this past May.

Justin Andrew Nickle was in direct view of others outside a motor home on May 5, Wyoming County Assistant District Attorney Timothy Carroll said in a virtual guilty plea hearing before Judge Russell Shurtleff via Zoom on Friday.
