A 56-year-old Enid man was sentenced to 10 years in prison on charges of indecent exposure and drug possession.

David Lee Simmons pleaded no contest Thursday before District Judge Paul Woodward to charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and indecent exposure. The indecent exposure charge was amended from a charge of outraging public decency.

He also pleaded guilty to charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia in another case.

Woodward sentenced Simmons to 10 years in prison, with credit for time served, ordered him to be subject to the state’s methamphetamine and sex offender registrations upon his release, and ordered him to pay fees and costs associated with the case.

The newest case, filed Aug. 31, 2016, stemmed from an arrest where police found Simmons in his truck with his penis tied to the vehicle’s steering wheel.

According to an affidavit filed in the case, Enid Police Department Officer Dustin Fitzwater was sent at 12:18 a.m. Aug. 27, 2016, to the area of 400 E. Wabash on a report of a suspicious vehicle.

Fitzwater was told a red and black Chevrolet pickup was parked in the lot behind 451 E. Leona Mitchell, according to the affidavit. Dispatch also told Fitzwater the truck had been there several times in the past few days.

Officer Robert Grassino spoke with two witnesses. The two told Grassino they had noticed Simmons in the area almost every day for the past several weeks , according to the affidavit. Fitzwater was told Simmons had parked in the same area the past couple of days early in the morning before school would start at Carver Early Childhood Center, 815 S. 5th.

Fitzwater was told Simmons was seen multiple times parked for several hours each day, according to the affidavit. Fitzwater was also told Simmons was seen with binoculars as children were walking to and from school and seen driving around the area during school hours.

Fitzwater placed Simmons into custody. During an inventory of his truck, officers found a pair of binoculars between the driver’s seat and center console, according to the affidavit. A fully loaded syringe with a brown substance, which field-tested positive for methamphetamine, also was found in the truck.

At the time of this arrest, Simmons was free on $25,000 bond for another possession of methamphetamine charge stemming from an arrest in March 2016.
