Registered Sex Offender Charged with Lewd and Lascivious Exhibition

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Fort Walton
Beach man who was found naked from the waist down at Oak Tree
Nature Park in Mary Esther on March 24th.

Two brothers, ages 13 and 14, reported seeing a naked man riding a bicycle in the park where they were playing last Sunday.

A deputy who went to investigate walked into the park, around a bend on a public trail, and found 58-year old Kenneth Ray Poore sitting on a bench, naked from the waist down.

The deputy says when he asked Poore what he was doing, he just shrugged.

Poore, who is a registered sex offender, is charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition in the presence of a victim under the age of sixteen.
