Not-guilty pleas in Seattle indecent-exposure case

A Kenmore man accused of exposing himself to children in Seattle pleaded not guilty this morning to one count of second-degree child molestation and five counts of indecent exposure, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

Jesse Kaein Drugge , 29, remains in the King County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail.

Drugge, who also goes by the names Jesse Drugger and Jesse Trulson, was arrested Oct. 21 at his home in Kenmore. Police allege he exposed himself at least five times to boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 16 at a school, bus stop and playfield. The incidents happened in late September and early October, according to police.

Because Drugge was convicted of indecent exposure in 2005, each of the new indecent-exposure charges isĀ  a felony offense. He is also under investigation by Seattle police in connection with two other indecent-exposure cases, charging papers say.

Drugge’s next court hearing is scheduled for Nov. 15.
