Georgia sheriff accused of exposing himself makes plea deal

ATLANTA (AP) – A Georgia sheriff accused of exposing himself in an Atlanta park has pleaded guilty to violating two city ordinances after prosecutors agreed to drop a public indecency charge.

News outlets report DeKalb County Sheriff Jeffrey Mann pleaded guilty Thursday to engaging in prohibited conduct in a public park and obstructing a police officer.

As part of his plea deal, Mann was given a 180-day sentence that will be suspended as soon as he pays fines totaling $2,000. Municipal Court Judge Crystal Gaines also sentenced Mann to 80 hours of community service for both violations and banished him from Atlanta’s public parks for the duration of his sentence.

Mann returned to work this week after completing a 40-day suspension ordered by Gov. Nathan Deal.
