Mass. man who exposed himself to teenage girl will not have to register as a sex offender
BRENTWOOD — A Massachusetts man who exposed himself to a 14-year-old girl at a New Hampshire pizza shop in 2016 will serve three months in jail, but will not be required to register as a sex offender.
Seacoast Online reported that Jeffrey Beaulieu, 33, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, was sentenced in Rockingham County Superior Court on Friday to a 12-month jail sentence with nine months deferred for 12 months. Beaulieu pleaded guilty to one count of indecent exposure/gross lewdness in May. He was originally charged with two indecent exposure charges, but prosecutors dropped one of those counts.
Beaulieu exposed himself to the girl the night of April 25, 2016, at Tripoli Pizza at 418 Route 286. The girl was inside the pizzeria waiting for pizza with another minor female, according to police.
Police said Beaulieu made suspicious gestures toward the girl before unzipping his pants, exposing his genitals and then exiting the restaurant.
Seabrook police released security camera footage from inside the pizza place to the public to help identify Beaulieu.
An impact statement written by the victim said that she wished Beaulieu would be required to register as a sex offender, but that wasn't included as a requirement in his sentence.
While there are numerous charges under state law requiring individuals to register as sex offenders, offender registration is only required for an indecent exposure or lewdness charge if it is a second or subsequent offense.
Kate Winter, the victim’s advocate on Beaulieu’s case, said that gives a judge discretion in whether to require registration.
Beaulieu’s sentence includes conditions that he remain on good behavior, have no contact with the victim or her family and refrain from alcohol and non-prescribed drug use. He must also follow treatment recommendations for a psychosexual evaluation and provide proof of completion to the state.
Beaulieu's deferred sentence requires him to appear before a judge and prove that he has remained on good behavior. He has a review hearing set for Nov. 6.
