SOLEDAD — Desjuan Thompson, 23, an inmate at Correctional Training Facility, also known as Soledad State Prison, was sentenced Sept. 1 after being convicted of two counts of indecent exposure.
On July 16, 2020, Thompson, who is serving a prison sentence for carjacking, walked down the hallway of CTF and saw a female employee at the prison. As she passed by him, Thompson asked her how she was doing, pulled out his penis and masturbated in front of her.
On May 6, 2021, Thompson approached the pill window at CTF, where he asked for medicine. The female employee consulted her computer to find the medicine, but her system showed that Thompson did not have that type of medication prescribed to him. When she turned from her computer back toward him, Thompson had his penis out of his pants and placed on the window ledge.
Monterey County Judge Sam Lavorato Jr. presided over a one-day jury trial that concluded Aug. 31.
On Sept. 1, Lavorato sentenced Thompson to six months in Monterey County Jail following his release from his current prison sentence. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.
