COLUMBIA, Md. — A Howard county judge found Andrew Cleary, 30, guilty of two counts of indecent exposure and two counts of disorderly conduct for exposing himself in front of teenage girls in two separate incidents of last year. 

On March 29, 2018, members of the Atholton High School girls’ track team were running in the neighborhood when they saw a man expose his genitalia and masturbate inside his parked vehicle near Freetown and Fair Oaks Road in Columbia, police said. Howard police were called to the scene to investigate after the students reported the incident to school administration.

About two weeks later, some of the same students were participating in track practice near Quarterstaff Road in Columbia when they saw the same man in the same vehicle masturbating again, police said.

With the help of a photo array, a witness identified Cleary as the individual involved in both incidents.

Cleary's sentence is scheduled for July 11.
