A 34-year-old Lancaster County man was sentenced to a year in state prison last Wednesday for indecent exposure after police say he exposed himself to others in Eaton Township this past May.

At his sentencing via Zoom, Justin Andrew Nickle, of Ronks, told President Judge Russell Shurtleff that he regretted his action of last May 5 when he was in direct view of others outside a motor home, and he intended to seek counseling “because I want to get this kind of behavior behind me.”

He said, “I plan on fixing it.”

Wyoming County Assistant District Attorney Timothy Carroll told the judge that while it was Nickle’s only such charge in Wyoming County, “It is his eighth indecent exposure offense since 2014," and he would recommend the maximum sentence of 12-24 months.

The judge sentenced Nickle to state prison along with a $500 fine, but acknowledged he would get credit for 156 days already served in the county jail.
