After allegedly exposing himself to multiple women on hiking trails and leaving pictures of his dick on car windows, former Huntington Park police Chief Paul Lawrence Wadley has managed to avoid having to register as a sex offender by accepting a plea deal. The OC Register reports that Wadley's difficulties began when pictures of male genitalia were found on the ground on Oak Canyon Road in east Anaheim last November. Police were contacted by a woman who had seen the photos lying around on more than one occasion.

Wadley, 56, was linked to the pics and to flashing hikers at Toyon Park several weeks later, when a fingerprint on a car window that had also been hit with a dick pic was matched to his. Authorities later found similar photos on other cars in the area.

As part of his plea agreement, Wadley plead guilty to two misdemeanor counts of prowling and one count of vehicle tampering, and will serve three years of probation as well as complete 150 hours of community service.

According to his lawyer, Al Fadel Amer, Wadley's guns were taken away but he'll get them back when his probation ends, and in the meantime, he's been also ordered to stay away from parks and trails.
