Campus flasher sentenced to jail

An East Side man was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years of probation after he pleaded guilty Tuesday to two flashings in the University District.
Charles W. Holcomb, 45, of Sullivant Avenue was arrested on Wednesday, Sept. 16, after police discovered him masturbating while looking into a woman’s East Norwich Avenue residence, police said. An officer found Holcomb while responding to reports of a similar incident a block away.
When Holcomb was arrested, investigators named him as a suspect in a series of flashings in the University District, including one that occurred on the night of Wednesday, Sept. 9, on Eighth Avenue. According to police reports, three women said they saw a man exposing himself outside their apartment near South Campus. He fled before police arrived.
During his arraignment, Holcomb was charged with 28 criminal charges but ultimately pleaded guilty to two counts of voyeurism, four counts of public indecency and one count of possession of criminal tools. The other charged were dismissed.
Holcomb is listed as a Tier-3 registered sex offender for performing gross sexual imposition against an adult female. He was charged in 2004 for failing to verify his address, and he was also charged in 2005 for voyeurism and criminal trespassing, but those charges were dismissed.
