Two-year sentence in exposure

A Riverbank man was sentenced to two years in state prison after he was convicted of exposing himself in a front yard while children were playing nearby, according to the Stanislaus County district attorney's office.

Witnesses called law enforcement on Oct. 13, 2007, saying they spotted Gabriel Bernal Garcia in the front yard at a home in the 2900 block of Fern Court in Riverbank, exposing and touching himself, according to authorities.

A sheriff's deputy arrived and saw Garcia near some bushes exposing and touching himself. On Sept. 23, Garcia pleaded guilty to felony indecent exposure and admitted two prior convictions for the same offense, according to the district attorney's office.
