Man charged with indecent exposure for 8th time after incident at NC State Library

Police have made an arrest after a man exposed himself to a student during the first week of classes at NC State University.

Around noon Tuesday, a female student reported that a man had exposed her genitals to her at the DH Hill Library on the NC State campus.

By the time the student reported the incident and police responded, the man had left the area, said Lauren Barker, an NC State spokesperson.

Later that day, the same student reported that the man had returned to the library.

Campus police subsequently arrested Courtney Lawan Mitchell, 45. He has been charged with indecent exposure and resisting a government official.

Barker said the opposition to an officer’s charge came after Mitchell repeatedly provided officers with false names and dates of birth.

Mitchell, a Raleigh resident, has been charged with indecent exposure eight times since 2012. He pleaded guilty in six of those cases, and in one of those, the court was dismissed, according to court documents.

Barker said in an email that there was no physical contact between the suspect and the victim, nor were there any threats or weapons.

Indecent exposure is a class 2 felony.
