High School Flasher Sentenced to Probation

Jonathan Mendoza Pleads Guilty to Exposing Himself to Female Students


A man arrested for allegedly exposing himself to students at Dos Pueblos High School pleaded guilty and was sentenced last Wednesday to three years of supervised probation.

Jonathan Mendoza, 21, pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of engaging in lewd conduct and one count of carrying a concealed dirk or dagger on May 15 of last year.

As part of his probation, Mendoza must engage in sex offender treatment as recommended by the Probation Department, must stay away from the victims and from Dos Pueblos High, and must not possess any weapons, according to Deputy DA Gary Gemberling.

According to authorities, Mendoza was on the football field when he exposed himself to a group of female students. Authorities were able to identify Mendoza, who lived a couple of blocks away on Mendocino Drive, and arrested him.
