Man charged in connection with indecent exposure incidents on and near University of Michigan campus

By Staff

University of Michigan and Ann Arbor police have arrested a man accused of several indecent exposure and window-peeping incidents on and near campus in 2010, the university said.

Christopher Filipek, 30, of Plymouth, was arrested Wednesday and arraigned Thursday at the Washtenaw County jail on several charges, said University of Michigan spokeswoman Diane Brown.

The charges were:
  • One count of aggravated indecent exposure.
  • One count of indecent exposure.
  • Two counts of eavesdropping-trespassing.
  • Two counts of being a disorderly person-window peeper.

A felony sentencing enhancement provision was added to the indecent exposure count, which on conviction would allow the judge to impose a harsher sentence, up to life in prison, Brown said. Otherwise, the most serious charge, aggravated indecent exposure, a high-court misdemeanor, carries a maximum of two years in prison.

Filipek is charged in connection with indecent exposure incidents from Nov. 11 and 23 in the Oxford Housing area off Geddes Avenue on the U-M campus and March 26 and June 24 near campus. He is accused of lurking outside residential areas, peeping in windows and exposing and touching himself.

He is being held on a $100,000 cash bond, Brown said Thursday.

"Two counts of being a disorderly person-window peeper." How do you do that exactly? I would think that being a 'disorderly person-window peeper' would result in not being very good at window peeping?

@Bertha Venation: Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode on this topic?

One can only imagine what an "aggravated indecent exposure" would look like.

That is funny.

It's about time to get this person off the street and out of Ann Arbor!

Glad they finally caught up with this guy. Before his actions escalated into something more serious.
