Man accused of exposing himself to child

BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The Bay County Sheriff's Office arrested a man they say exposed his private parts to a child, then tried to make the child touch him.

According to arrest reports, Bill Owens was arrested last Friday on lewd and lascivious related charges.

The arrest report says the child told an adult Owens grabbed her hand and tried to make her touch him inappropriately and that Owens regularly exposed his private areas to the child.

In the report, Owens admitted he had sat in a way that exposed himself and apologized to the child. He also claims he did ask the child if the child wanted to touch him and when the child said no he apologized again.
