A 45-year-old paroled registered sex offender pleaded not guilty today to charges of exposing himself to women in public throughout Orange County and even Torrance and San Diego.
Patrick Dodenhoff is charged with eight felony counts of indecent exposure for incidents from March 5 through Tuesday, according to court records.
Dodenhoff was released from prison in December and living in San Luis Obispo, according to Brea police. The parolee was on GPS monitoring, but he allegedly removed the device March 3, according to police.
Dodenhoff is accused of exposing himself to a woman at 2:30 p.m. last Monday at Brea Mall.
Investigators suspect he exposed himself over the past week in Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, San Diego and Torrance, according to Brea police.
Anyone with information related to Dodenhoff was asked to call Orange County Crime Stoppers at (855) TIP-OCCS.
